Zenato Valpolicella Ripassa Superiore 750 mL

SKU
182576
Ripasso wines are fondly referred to as 'baby Amarone' by some. Zenato's baby is bigger and richer than most, with a deep ruby-red in color, this wine shows intense aromas of blackberries and black currants underscored by aromas of spice pepper, and a hint of leather. On the palate, it is smooth and viscous with well-balanced acidity and alcohol.

More about this item

Food pairing

Excellent companion to game dishes, grilled meat and roasts, salami and aged cheeses.

Production

The grapes are de-stemmed and macerated in stainless steel fermenters for 10-12 days. Once the alcoholic fermentation is completed, the new wine is separated from the skins by light pressing and conserved in large oak casks of 54 and 75 hectolitres until February; this is the period in which the dried grapes are pressed to produce Amarone. At this point, the Valpolicella is passed over the marc of the Amarone for a period of 7-8 days at a temperature of 25-28�C. The wine is aged for 18 months in 500 lt. oak casks and barrels.

Winery

This wine is closely connected to the greatest wine of Valpolicella: Amarone. After pressing the dried grapes from which Amarone is made, the Valpolicella wine is passed over the still warm marc of Amarone. A second alcoholic fermentation begins which increases the alcoholic content and the wine becomes richer in colour, bouquet.
