Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso

About Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso

Within the Veneto wine region lies the DOC of Valpolicella. While the majority of the wine that comes out of this region is made into a light and fruity style intended for early consumption, the ripasso method—a technique that re-ferments the wine using the unpressed skins and seeds from Amarone production—creates a deeper wine with noticeably more tannin, pigment and a mandatory minimal alcohol content of 13%. With its dark fruit, coffee and subtle raisinated qualities, these wines often resemble scaled-down versions of the more intense Amarones, but for a fraction of the cost.
