“Ripasso” VALPOLICELLA CLASSICO SUPERIORE DOC 2017
An excellent Valpolicella Ripasso that shows a plethora of dried cranberries, strawberries, nutmeg and red licorice. Medium body, but with a serious backbone of juicy tannins and a solid center palate of dried fruit. Lovely acidity drives the finish. JS
TOMMASI "Ripasso" is the unique result of refermenting TOMMASI Valpolicella Classico Superiore on the warm grape skins from which TOMMASI Amarone has been fermented. This process, used only in rare vintage years, imparts the richness of character and personality of a great wine to an already superior wine.
Conca d’Oro, La Groletta and De Buris vineyards.
Corvina Veronese 70%, Rondinella 25%, Corvinone 5%
Refermented on the Amarone grape skins with the method “Ripasso” and then 15 months in Slavonian Oak barrels of 65 hectoliters.
Deep ruby red in color. Rich spicy perfumes and black pepper notes with a hint of raisins. Full body balanced taste, very intense and spicy with sweet cherry flavours.
White and red meat, game, fresh and aged cheeses.
