The 2015 Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore Ripassa shows black fruit and plum with chalky limestone notes that add a touch of dryness to the otherwise soft and sweet fruit profile delivered here. In terms of Ripasso (named Ripassa here), this expression does show nice darkness and richness that tastes even more pronounced in this very warm and sunny vintage. Pair this wine with your favorite barbecued meats.
This wine is closely connected to the greatest wine of Valpolicella: Amarone. After pressing the dried grapes from which Amarone is made, the Valpolicella wine is passed over the still warm marc of Amarone. A second alcoholic fermentation begins which increases the alcoholic content and the wine becomes richer in colour, bouquet.
