Ripassa Della Valpolicella Superiore Zenato 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Tiefes, dichtes, schon fast schwarzes Kirschrot. Frisches, fruchtiges Bouquet von reifen Kirschen, Gewürzen, Blumen und ein Hauch Walnüssen. Im Gaumen enorm dicht und füllig. Unglaublich runder, samtiger Wein mit reichen, komplexen Beerenaromen und einem beeindruckend langen - schier unendlichen - Abgang.

Winemaker Notes - Zenato gives the name Ripassa to this wine, which shares many of the characteristics of our Amarone. As soon as the fermentation is completed of the dried grapes for the Amarone, selected lots of Valpolicella are then re-passed on the Amarone pomace, thus initiating a second fermentation which increases slightly the alcoholic content and gives the wine deeper colour, increased extract, and more complex aromas. After 6 months bottle-ageing, the result is a rounded, velvet-textured wine with rich, complex aromas of berries and an impressively lengthy finish that seems to linger forever. Ripassa represents one of the most important milestones in Zenato s winemaking evolution.

The production of this wine is strictly related to that of Amarone: after Amarone is finished fermenting, the pomace of the dried grapes used to produce it is joined with the Valpolicella fermented just after the October harvest. This second fermentation raises the alcohol and gives the wine deeper colour, richer body and aromas. After bottle-ageing, it is ready to be enjoyed. Deep ruby red, it offers rich, elegant, lingering scents; it is crisp and dry in the mouth, well structured, with a lovely, velvety texture. - Winery ** Only 20 in Stock **
