The traditional “Ripasso” technique uses part of the best Valpolicella which is then fermented a second time using Amarone marc to increase the alcohol content and give the wine more colour, extracts and aromas.

Ruby red in colour with light violet hues, it has a fresh and floral bouquet characterised by hints of fruits of the forest. A well-balanced and dry flavour.

It is recommended that you open the bottle at least one hour before drinking and serve at a temperature of 18°C.

Afterwards, the “Ripasso” technique is used, involving fermentation on intact Amarone grape skins for around 10 days between February and March.
