Description

It's quite staggering how different this wine is to the estate's straight Valpolicella. It's called a Ripasso because the grape skins from their Amarone wine production are added to the Valpolicella to give it a lift in terms of both richness and flavour. The skins are from partially dried grapes, so they add a layer of sweet spice and dried fruits that sits alongside the more vibrant youg fruit from the Valpolicella. The result is a delicious wine with so much flaour intensity.
