Valpolicella Classico Superiore Ripasso

18.80

The privileged soil conditions and the right proportion of vines allow to obtain this Valpolicella, known all over the world.

Compared to the classic Valpolicella, the name Superiore indicates an aging of at least two years.

The name Ripasso derives from the technique used to obtain a wine more alcoholic, colorful, full-bodied and with more complex aromas. It consists of returning the classic Valpolicella to the marc of Amarone.

After a good aging in wooden barrels and an aging of a few months in bottle, it is put on sale.
