Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore DOC 2017 "Gentilezza"
Ruby red with intriguing purple highlights and light garnet nuances. Morello cherries in spirit are the highlight of this magnificent experience, along with aromas of liquorice, cloves and cinnamon, hints of roasted coffee beans, refreshing tangy breezes and a rich umami scent. Well-developed and engaging, with a splendid acidity with a refreshing and invigorating taste of cherries, plums and blackcurrant juice. Tales of ripe fruits with a salty note and palate-tickling hints of black pepper.
Why We like it
An astonishingly unique wine which pays homage to the ancient winemaking tradition of the local area. The fresh, crisp fruit of Valpolicella Superiore blends with the velvety, spicy energy of Amarone: a sophisticated mix of sensations binding intimately through ageing in wooden barrels.
First courses with ragu sauce and tasty risottos. Grilled pork sausage and pork meat, tasty chicken dishes, lamb chops, and braised dishes with polenta. Medium-matured cheeses.
