Wine maker notes
San Giuseppe’s master craftsmen place the grapes of this Valpolicella through a double process to ensure its rich, velvety smooth taste. After an initial fermentation, the young wine is mixed with just-pressed Amarone skins to undergo a second fermentation or ripasso. This process enriches the wine, adding body, rounded texture and a complex bouquet. The wine is then matured in oak barrels to obtain exceptional balance and harmony.

Technical notes
The process begins with an abundance of Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella grapes grown in premier Classico vineyards in the Negrar Hills of Verona, Italy. This area is considered the finest spot for grape growing due to its unique microclimate, ideal for optimum fruit ripeness. Taking the grapes from the vine at just the right time is one of the many secrets that make Ripasso Valpolicella Classico Superiore D.O.C. so special.

Food pairing
Enjoy with veal, lamb, pork and pasta.
