Zenato – Ripassa
56 in stock
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
Deep ruby red in colour, has an intense nose, elegant and persistent with hints of black cherry and plum.
Harmonious and velvety, with a good structure and a spicy finish.
Excellent companion to game dishes, grilled meat and roasts, salami and aged cheeses.
