Ripasso Valpolicella Classico Superiore DOC 2013

TOMMASI Ripasso is the unique result of refermenting TOMMASI Valpolicella Classico Superiore on the warm grape skins from which TOMMASI Amarone has been fermented. This process, used only in rare vintage years, imparts the richness of character and personality of a great wine to an already superior wine. Deep ruby red in colour. Rich spicy perfumes and black pepper notes with a hint of raisins. Full body balanced taste, very intense and spicy with sweet cherry flavours. Recommended with white and red meat, game, fresh and aged cheeses.

4 out of 5 starsReviewed on January 04, 2016

Ripasso is the adorned middle child of Valpolicella, Italy. It is made with the youthful and exuberant, fresh Valpolicella wine yet "re-passed" over leftover skins from its big brother Amarone. The result is a wine that is deeper, more complex and mature than its younger sibling yet not quite as strong and sophisticated as Amarone. This Ripasso offers tremendous value and near Amarone styling yet minus the posture and price. Marvelous value for a formidable wine.
