About Valpolicella Ripasso

Ripasso is one of the five DOC and DOCG wines of the Valpolicella (translation: “valley of many cellars”) region in Veneto. Ripasso is a beautiful dark ruby color with rich spicy aromas featuring a hint of black pepper and sweet cherries.

The wine’s name captures the way it is produced, literally meaning “to repeat.” Often referred to as a “Baby Amarone,” the second fermentation of the wine uses the grape skins left over from the production of Amarone. 

While Amarone is produced with grapes that have been dried for several months, Ripasso is made with two fermentations.  The first one with fresh grapes and the second one in contact with Amarone skins.  This makes Ripasso a fresher and lighter version of Amarone.  The wine then undergoes one year aging in oak before bottling.

The result is an extraordinary wine, which can be paired in a thousand ways. It is particularly well-paired with flavourful grilled or braised meats, and stronger flavoured pastas as well as aged cheeses.
