Verticale Ripassa Valpolicella Ripasso DOC Superiore, Zenato
A velvety red, offering fine tannins and a pleasing palate of plump cherry, dried fig, espresso crème and baking spices. Juicy and well-balanced.

Country and Region: Italy,Veneto

Classification: DOC Superiore

Producer: Zenato

Wine Style: Red

Grape Varieties : Corvina | Oseleta | Rondinella

Vinification: As soon as the dried grapes for the Amarone are fermented, selected batches of Valpolicella wine are “re-passed” over the Amarone’s lees, thus starting a second fermentation that slightly increases the alcohol content and gives the wine deeper colour, increased extract, and more complex aromas. Ripassa is refined in tank for six months and then aged in French Allier tonneaux for eighteen months. The wine spends an additional six months in bottle before it is released.

Closure: Natural Cork
