Descrizione vino

The Ripasso represents the farm tradition of Verona and it is obtained by a very ancient method called “ripasso”. This method consists in the re-introduction of the young Valpolicella on the end-fermentation Recioto peels. The wine becomes warm and ripe. The Ripasso has the Valpolicella characteristics of freshness and drinkability, but also the most rich and concentrated emotions of chocolate and black cherry of the ripen grapes. It is made by Corvina Veronese 85%, Merlot 10% and Rondinella 5% grapes. They are cultivated with the trellised method with the guyot pruning and the density is 5000 trees per hectare. The cultivation is located in the Valpantena and the Classic Valopolicella hills. The soils are marl-calcareous and a part is volcanic rich of iron. The fermentation takes place in short and wide steel tanks to help the contact of the peels with the must at 20-22°C for about two weeks. The second fermentation, called “Ripasso” takes place in march on the Amarone peels because they still have active yeasts that allow the fermentation. Finally, the maturation of the Valpolicella Ripasso occurs in a Veronese – Bertani small barrel of 750 liters made by French oak, for 9 months.
