To pass through again, "Ripasso", this wonderful classic Valpolicella is intensified by passing through the musts of the Amarone that came before it, bringing a bold, spicy bouquet with elegance and fantastic balance.

Wine Profile
Wine Profile / Tasting Notes
Deep ruby red color. The bouquet is full of spicy notes such as cinnamon, cloves and black pepper. On the palate, the roundness and elegance come through. The tannins are silky, the wine is full-bodied and has fantastic balance.
Production Notes
Limited production: 2.200 bottles produced. Following the brief period of “appassimento”(20-30 days), the grapes are destemmed and pressed and the must is left to ferment in oak barrels for about 20 days at a controlled temperature. After the first fermentation, the wine is transferred to 500lt casks where it refines for 4 months. The wine is then added to the skins of the Amarone with some more dried grapes and left to ferment for a second time over a period of 2 weeks. This process increases the body and alcohol content of the wine. The wine is then drained and left to mature for a year in 500lt and 225lt barrels.
Winemaker Notes
“Valpo” is a result of a profound understanding of our land and our grapes. The difference in sun exposure and microclimate in our parcels allows us to select the small quantities of extremely high quality grapes that are then used to make our Ripasso Superiore “Valpo”.
Food & Wine Pairing
"Valpo" pairs well with grilled red meats, stews and game as well as mature cheese. Serve at 57°.
