Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso is born from the refermentation of Valpolicella wine on the marcs (skin and pulp after pressing) of Amarone. The contact between Valpolicella wine and Amarone marcs, which are rich in sugars, triggers a new fermentation. The second fermentation is named “ripasso” in Italian, meaning “re-pass”, or “go over again” – it is a slow process that enriches the structure of the wine and gives it subtle notes that characterize Amarone. The result is a structured wine that is balanced in taste, accompanied on the nose
by slight hints of ripe and dried fruit that during aging evolve, increasing complexity.
This wine is bright ruby in colour, with aromas of red plum and wild flowers and has a juicy, lengthy finish with a hint of spice.
