Valpolicella Ripasso

2008 Valpolicella Ripasso
Ca’ Rugate

Veneto, Italy

Ripasso is the traditional method where the pomace from the dried Amarone grapes are left to referment in a Valpolicella wine from the same vintage. The wine is aged in 50% large oak casks and 50% stainless steel for about 8 months.

Intense garnet red in color. Concentrated aromas of red fruit cherries with a hint of spice and flowers. Full bodied on the palate with soft tannins which give it a velvety texture.
