Ripasso Valpolicella Valpantena Superiore DOC
A wine that comes from the wise peasant ingenuity. In order not to waste the marc of Recioto, it was decided to “pass over” the Valpolicella wine on the skins of Amarone and Recioto, letting it absorb more complex and deeper scents. After about ten days, Valpolicella was rediscovered as a new wine, with a greater complexity of aromas and a higher alcohol content. Ripasso Costa Arente intrigues the palate with that unfailing acid background, the persuasive signature of the terroir of our hills.
