VALPOLICELLA RIPASSO SUPERIORE DOC

PRODUCTION TECHNIQUE:

Grapes harvested in vineyards in the Mezzane area are mashedand cold-macerated through spontaneous fermentation.After devatting, the wine is stored in a steel tank until it is “repassed”over the pomace of Amarone of the same vintage. This procedurestarts at the end of January, when the wine is kept with Recioto pomace for a week. It is subsequently aged 18 months in French oak barriques.

CHARACTERISTICS OF THE WINE:

The colour is deep red with slight glints of violet. There is an intense- bouquet of Marasca cherries in alcohol with light hints of chocolate- and vanilla. The flavour is soft and pleasant with a strong hintof fruit in alcohol.

BEST SERVED WITH:

This well-structured wine goes well with flavoursome pasta dishes,boiled meat, red meat and mature cheese.
