2018 Brigaldara Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore

Our Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso is born from the refermentation of Valpolicella wine on the marcs of Amarone. The contact between Valpolicella wine and Amarone marcs - that are still rich in sugars, triggers a new fermentation. This second fermentation is named "ripasso" in Italian, meaning “re-pass,” or “go over again,” - a slow process that enriches the structure of the wine. The result is a structured wine, very balanced in taste and accompanied on the nose by slight hints of ripe and dried fruit that during aging evolve, increasing complexity.

Bright ruby. Aromas of red plum, marzipan and exotic flowers, along with a saline nuance. Juicy and tightly coiled on the palate, with strong acidity that preserves the red fruit and spice flavours. It finishes with good purity of fruit and length.

Brigaldara's relationship with Valpolicella does not end with winemaking. It is the reinstatement of an ancient and visionary bond with its terroir. The retrieval of an organic dimension. The act of cultivating the land baring in mind the importance of sustainability and of the natural synergies that take place in a balanced ecosystem.

Pairing Suggestions: Ideal with meat dishes, or with cured meats and with cheese.

Maturation: Valpolicella wine is refermented on Amarone marcs for ca. 5 days, with short pumping overs to keep the upper part wet. Aged 1 year and a half in large wooden barrels.
