This Valpolicella is deep ruby red in colour with a beautiful concentration. On the nose, pronounced cherry and red fruit aromas combine with sweet spice and herbal notes. The palate is rounded and full-bodied, with excellent structure and vibrant acidity; a harmonious wine that is both smooth and vivacious on the palate.

Production Notes

This wine was made using the traditional Veronese “Ripasso” technique. The grapes were destemmed and gently crushed before being fermented in temperature controlled stainless-steel tanks at 23°C - 28°C for nine days, with daily pumping over. A second fermentation was started by adding Amarone pomace to the must, to add body and depth, at temperatures of 15°C - 19°C, continuing for eight to ten days. The wine was aged in stainless-steel tanks for 14 months, spending a further 11 months in large Slavonian oak barrels prior to bottling.

Producer Information

Corte Giara is the negociant label of famed Valpolicella producer Allegrini. The wines are made by Allegrini using fruit sourced from outside of their estate vineyards. They have a similar stamp of quality that sets them apart from most of the Veronese wines produced at this level.

As you might expect from Allegrini, the Valpolicella Ripasso offers outstanding typicity and quality.
