Valpolicella Ripasso Classico, DOC, Montigoli, 2016

Lot: 1196 Supplier: AVENUE SRL. Country/Region: Italy/Veneto Major Grape: Corvina

Classic Valpolicella in style, this wine has lots of tangy fruits and is very moreish with lots of appeal. Bright cherry in colour, it has aromas of almonds and red cherries. It is supple with succulent red fruit and a fresh tangy finish. It was produced from a blend of 60% Corvina Veronese with 15% Corvinone, 15% Rondinella and 10% of other mixed grapes. The vineyards are located in the Negrar hills towards Torbe between 300 and 420 metres, facing south-east. Grapes were harvested in October and fermented over ten days with daily punch-downs. A second "Ripasso" fermentation was carried out in February 2017 on Amarone lees. The wine was then matured in barrel for nine months.
