Valpolicella Ripasso What is it?

A question that is often asked is: What is Ripasso di Valpolicella DOC or Ripassa?

A great wine priced between the high priced Amarone and the lesser more popular Valpolicella DOC. Rispasso wine can be of remarkable value and do have impressive vintage potential.

 

I found this short but interesting description at Consorzio tutela vini Valpolicella consorzio valpolicella

 

The Valpolicella Ripasso DOC is produced by the contact of the Valpolicella Amarone pomace remaining for about 15-20 days. It is characterized by a greater structure and longevity compared to Valpolicella basis, by a higher alcohol content, by a ‘lower acidity and a higher roundness, from a higher value in extracts and in the phenolic substances.

Ruby color with garnet hues, it offers a scent, slightly ethereal and pink fruit with hints of vanilla; a refined taste, harmonious, dry and velvety.

Due to its characteristics of pleasantness, may accompany early winter dishesmain dishesmeats and medium-aged cheeses.

The Valpolicella Ripasso is a red wine DOC produced exclusively in the Veneto Valpolicella in the province of Verona from native grapes such as Corvina , Corvinone (to a maximum of 50% instead of the Corvina), Rondinella , but also in smaller percentages with Forselina, Negrara and Oseleta. La Molinara out recently by the regulations as mandatory is still allowed. They are the same grapes that are used for the production of ‘ Amarone and Recioto .
