“Valpo” Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore DOC

32,50

“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”.

WINE-MAKING TECHNIQUE:

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 fines 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 o and left to mature for a year in 500 lt and 225 lt barrels.

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 elegant, the wine is full bodied and has fantastic balance.
