Valpolicella Ripasso Classico Superiore DOC 2015
The name Valpolicella Ripasso comes from the method used to produce this wine. With this technique, the leftover grape skins and seeds from the fermentation of Recioto and Amarone are added to the batch of Valpolicella wine. In this way, a second fermentation starts, and the wine enhances its complexity.
The vintage 2015 was characterized by a dry and warm summer, without rainfalls. This caused the vegetative block of vines: grape maturation stopped for a period and ended just after the rain occurred at the end of summer.
The wine presents the typical hints of warm vintages (red ripe fruits), still maintaining acidity, typical feature given by our soils. The result is an elegant, complex wine but not heavy. Perfect pairs are risotto, meat, and cheese.
