Prepare yourself to be transported to the Vento region of North-Eastern Italy with this intricate and fruity offering. The term “Ripassa” refers to the production process whereby wine from the first pressing of the three Italian varietals is added to a cask containing the skins and lees left over from fermented Amarone wines. Adding the lighter Valpolicella-style wine over the remainders of the “bigger” Amarone wine imparts additional color, texture and flavor to the Valpolicella-style Ripassa.

This process leaves you with a fragrant and tangy wine with distinctive cherry, black plum and chocolaty aromas; bringing through a fuller-bodied offering, which is an excellent addition to your special occasion; pairing well with grilled Venison chops, velvety well-made mushroom Risotto and traditional spaghetti and meatballs.
