Tasting Notes

Ripasso Valpolicella rests on Amarone pomace in order to create an extraordinarily complex wine. This was further enhanced by the oak aging in barrel (a year and a half) giving a mild spiced character.

Veneto

Valpolicella

This is a very large region that produces all sorts of red wines, often from the Corvina grape, that range from light, early-drinking, Beaujolais-esque efforts to hulking dried-grape monsters like Recioto and Amarone.
