Using the Ripasso technique, we obtain the maximum expression of the Corvina, Rondinella, Corvinone and Negrara grapes. After long maceration on the skins, the wine remains in stainless steel until February before being pumped over the pomace from the vinification of the Amarone. This causes a new fermentation, which increases the body and intensity of the wine. It is then transferred into barrels of various sizes for 8 months prior to the final blend being prepared. After bottling, it undergoes another long period of maturation.

Ruby-red, this wine offers intense aromas of wild cherries, redcurrant and hints of toasting. A rich and full-bodied wine, with sweet and round tannins.

Excellent with savoury first course dishes such as tortellini and pappardelle alla lepre or meat, such as roast lamb, barbecued meats and seasoned cheeses. Serve at 16-18°C.

  1. Valpolicella ripasso review by Geoffjoe on 25/03/2018

    Excellent wine for the very good price, equally perfect with pasta or on it's own.

  2. Not as powerful as some, but great taste and value for money review by DashDave on 28/01/2018

    Buying a Valpolicella Ripasso for £6 does not always mean its rubbish. This stylish Italian red is fruity and well balanced with a good aftertaste and well-structured tannin. OK, its not as full bodied as some Valpolicella Ripasso, but its great value and will still impress your family and friends.

  • Medium-Bodied and Textured Red Wines

    Medium-Bodied and Textured Red Wines

    In the middle of the gamut from light to bold, medium-bodied reds are some of the best food pairing wines. Classic examples of this style include varieties like Sangiovese and Merlot. You’ll find there is quite a bit of variation in these varieties because of regional differences in growing and winemaking. For instance, a Merlot from a hillside estate on Spring Mountain in Napa Valley will have high tannin and blackberry flavours whereas a Merlot from a large valley vineyard in Lombardy, Italy will exhibit subtle tannins and soft cherry flavours.
