Description

A thousand years of history, one hundred and twenty hectares of property – forty-seven of which are planted with vines – distributed in three different areas of Verona: Valpolicella Classica, Valpantena and Eastern Valpolicella. A historic family, the Cesari, that has owned the villa and the surrounding land since 1928. The Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso is born from the refermentation of Valpolicella wine on the skins of Amarone. The contact between Valpolicella wine and Amarone skins – that are still rich in sugars, triggers a new fermentation. This second fermentation is named “ripasso” in Italian, meaning “re-pass,” or “go over again,” – a slow process that enriches the structure of the wine. The result is a structured wine, very balanced in taste and accompanied on the nose by slight hints of ripe and dried fruit that during aging evolve, increasing complexity

TASTING NOTES

Bright ruby. Aromas of red plum, marzipan and exotic flowers, along with a saline nuance. Juicy and tightly coiled on the palate, with strong acidity that preserves the red fruit and spice flavours. It finishes with good purity of fruit and length.

FOOD PAIRING

Try pairing Ripasso with red wine braised short ribs, hearty mushroom risotto, or lamb ragù.
