Other curiosities

Red wine of excellence, the Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore Doc is obtained through the refermentation and a second maceration of the classic vintage Valpolicella over the marcs of Amarone and Recioto, still rich in typical aromatic components. Subsequently, the “Ripasso” ages for 12 months in tonneau, to develop its unique characteristics. Its name refers to its territory of origin, Valpolicella, a hilly area located in the province of Verona, famous all over the world for its wines and red marbles.


The color is an intense ruby red. The olfactory analysis reveals a combination of fresh and complex elements, the ripe fruit like berries, cherries and sour cherries, mixes with spices and tobacco. The taste is firm, full and structured, with soft tannins, perfectly integrated.
