Our finest selection of Valpolicella is given a second fermentation in contact with the grape pomace from the Amarone, thus enriching its aromas, body and complexity.
We were so proud of our first “Ripasso” made with a selection of our best grapes, that we became the first family to flaunt the name on a label.

A deep, bright ruby red in color, it is rich and intensely spicy on the nose, with notes of cherry jam, tobacco and black pepper. On the palate it is full-bodied yet elegant, with gentle, silky tannins and a very long finish.
It is excellent with boiled, braised or grilled meats.
