Valpolicella Ripasso DOC Superiore “Caparbio” by Piccoli
Vinification: The Ripasso is elaborated using conventional technique, which consists of bringing the grapes of Valpolicella wines in contact with the grape skins of Amarone.
This is where the term “pass” comes from.
This process lasts between ten to twenty days during which it allows the transfer of sugar, colour, polyphenolic substances and softness. Daily “remontage” is carried out and the fermentation temperatures never exceed 20°C.
Aging: The wine is refined in 3,5 to 5hl French oak for at least 2 years before bottle.
Released after 6 months in bottle.
Food pairings: Wine of medium structure, it will be ideal the whole meal because of its freshness.
It could accompany risotto, medium aged cheeses or savoury dishes.
Wine tasting Colour: Intense ruby red colour with purple reflections.
Bouquet: Very floral with red berries such as raspberry and blackberry.
Palate: Elegant, smooth and very fruity. Well-balanced with spicy touch.
Soft tannins with plenty of freshness. Long after taste.
