Produced from the three Valpolicella grape varieties of Corvina Veronese, Rondinella and Molinara. Ripasso is made by the addition of pomace of leftover grape skins and seeds from the fermentation of Amarone to a batch of Valpolicella wines for a period of extended maceration. The wine spends 10 days on the Amarone skins before 18 months in oak barrels. This adds body and complexity to the wine - a `baby Amarone`. A sweet cherry nose leads to a soft and supple palate with notes of woodland, sweet black fruits and a touch of leather maturity on the finish.
