The Ripassa Valpolicella Superiore from Zenato is an excellent, characterful and harmonious red wine cuvée from the Italian DOC Valpolicella Ripasso wine-growing region.
This wine appears dark and deep ruby red in the glass and unfolds its elegant and intense bouquet, which consists of aromas of black cherries and plums. Spicy nuances and hints of rum pot, the result of the Apassimento process, complement the nose.
On the palate, this red wine from Veneto is juicy and supple and its compact fruit is complemented by subtle notes of coffee, licorice and almond and carried into a long, elegant finish.
Vinification of the Zenato Ripassa Superiore Valpolicella
The grape varieties for this cuvée are Corvina, Rondinella and Oseleta. The grapes come from vineyards with dry, loamy and calcareous soils. The climate is Mediterranean, with hot, dry summers and mild, wet winters.After alcoholic fermentation, a second fermentation takes place for around 20 days on the still-warm Amarone marc. In this ripasso process, the young wine extracts further aromas from the marc. The wine is aged for 24 months in French barrique barrels, followed by 6 months in the bottle.
