BETWEEN HISTORY AND UNIQUENESS

The history of Ripasso

``Ripasso`` is a winemaking technique typical of this area, which consists in making the Valpolicella wine referment on the Amarone marc. This contact with the marc, which lasts about 2 weeks, gives the new wine a more decisive body, greater softness, lower acidity and greater extract. The wine obtained is then aged in cask for at least 12 months.
