Product description

"We were so proud of our first Ripasso, produced from the best selection of grapes, that we became the first family to show it on the label. Ripasso is relatively new among the wines of Valpolicella, but the technique derives from the traditions of sharecropping which vary from family to family. Today, it has become a cult wine and is among our most popular classics. The second fermentation of our best Valpolicella base on Amarone pomace gives structure and an intriguing aromatic complexity. Amarone fanatics will find in our Ripasso the characteristic traits of a great wine at a price and alcohol content that makes it the perfect daily alternative." - Tommasi

Intense ruby red, the Ripasso has a nose that recalls spicy black pepper and raisin, while the palate is intense and spicy, with lots of sweet red cherry flavors.

93 Points - James Suckling     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.

91 Points - Vinous     The 2017 Valpolicella Classico Superiore Ripasso is deeply alluring with dusty purple-tinged florals, sweet spices and black currants. Here I’m finding silky, cool-toned textures, further accentuated by vibrant acids, as mineral-tinged wild berries and hints of lavender soothe the senses. There’s beautiful symmetry and persistence, coming across as powerful and dense yet remaining energetic, as dark fruits linger long. This is really quite beautiful and a great value in its category.
