ADDITIONAL NOTES:
"Ripassa" is the name of the famous Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso from the Zenato winery: an elegant and complex wine, linked to the ancient practice of "revising" the best expressions of Valpolicella. It is one of the most representative and important wines of the Zenato family, the culmination of over half a century of experimentation in the vineyard and in the cellar.
Valpolicella "Ripassa" comes from the typical Corvina, Rondinella and Oseleta grapes, vinified and macerated in steel for 10-12 days. The wine thus produced is separated from the skins and then stored in steel until January, when the dried Amarone grapes are pressed. At this point the Valpolicella is "ripassato", i.e. placed in contact with the pomace of Amarone for 7-8 days, during which it ferments a second time, enriching itself with aromas and perfumes, structure and alcohol content. The production process is crowned by an 18-month refinement in tonneaux and at least 6 in the bottle.
