Valpolicella Superiore Ripassa 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Tiefes, dichtes, schon fast schwarzes Kirschrot. Frisches, fruchtiges Bouquet von reifen Kirschen, Gewürzen, Blumen und ein Hauch Walnüssen. Im Gaumen enorm dicht und füllig. Unglaublich runder, samtiger Wein mit reichen, komplexen Beerenaromen und einem beeindruckend langen - schier unendlichen - Abgang.

Ripassa is the name that Zenato has given to this wine, which is closely related to Amarone.Immediately after fermentation of the partially dried Amarone grapes, the finest selection of Valpolicella is repassed, starting off a second alcoholic fermentation. The alcohol content rises and the wine acquires a richer colour with greater extracts and fragrances. After ageing in the bottle for 6 months, this wine becomes extremely long, plush and velvety, with intense fragrances of red fruits.The Ripassa is one of the most significant wines in the history of our company. - Winery

The 2010 Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore Ripassa shows clean lines with cherry fruit and dark plum backed by pretty tones of savory spice and cured meat. "Ripassa" was among the first "Ripasso-style" wines made in this area and its fantasy name actually predates the denomination name. Bold darkness and ripe fruit flavors penetrate the finish. Drink 2014-2018. This has fragrances of dark cherry, moist soil and spice. The palate offers ripe black-fruit flavors, along with white pepper and baking spice accents. Pair this with salami or pot roast. - K.O.
