Montresor Capitel della Crosara Valpolicella Ripasso DOP

2014

In a Nutshell

Ripasso wine from a single vineyard with concentrated fruit flavours and spicy oak.

Tasting Notes

Intense aromas of fresh morello cherry and ripe plum give an attractive first impression. The palate has bright, crunchy cherry-ish fruit with spicy vanilla notes and the classic bitter cherry finish typical of ripasso. Full and lush and so very silky smooth to drink. Irresistible!

Production Notes

Made by the Ripasso (literally 'repassed') method, which involves adding the unpressed skins from the dried grapes which were used to make an Amarone to a young Valpolicella wine. This helps to add extra flavour and alcohol to the wine (causing it to start re-fermenting) and gradually the luscious flavours of Amarone are imparted to the wine. After this the wine is aged for 16 months in French and American oak casks along with some small barriques.
