Vinification: The Valpolicella Ripasso wine is obtained through enological procedure of “re-fermentation”. The future Valpolicella gets “ripassato” on the residual lees of Amarone or Recioto della Valpolicella. This process happens in February. After the re-fermentaion, the wine ready to become Valpolicella Ripasso, is left to age in wood barrels for 18 months during which period there will be a natural micro oxygenation and a stabilization of the colour and the evolution of the aroma. The bottle is then placed horizontally for at least 9 months to complete the formation of the bouquet.
