From the first smell you're hit with characteristic notes of ripe fruit, fruit preserve and cherries. Its incredible persistence is striking, it lingers on the palate, where it opens in all its power with a warm, elegant body.

Production: The “Ripasso” technique has a history of use in Valpolicella, and consists in keeping the wines of the same year’s vintage or that of previous years on fermented dregs of the dried grapes used to produce Amarone. Essentially, this serves to strengthen the Valpolicella, which is made from a blend of grapes consisting of about 70-75% Corvina Veronese, 20% Rondinella and 5% Negrara/Rossignola, and make it more robust, drawing what is left from these noble dregs. This process lasts 15/18 days and the Valpolicella wine that has thus been “made over” acquires colour, structure, fragrance and tannins, as well as about 1% more in alcoholic level than the original wine. After it is finally racked off in February and March and has undergone its malolactic fermentation, the wine starts the aging period according to the tradition, in order to achieve balance and rotundity, keeping its original fruitfulness. Ageing is completed by resting in bottles.

Best served with game, grilled and stewed meats.

Serve at a temperature of 18-20°C. Uncork at least two hours before pouring.
