Valpolicella Ripasso is a great alternative to the more exclusive Amarone Della Valpolicella. Valpolicella Ripasso is made by macerating Amarone pomace with fresh Valpolicella Classico, which adds complexity and body to the wine. Ruby red in colour with aromas of ripe fruits and spices, Moscone's expression of Valpolicella Ripasso Classico Superiore DOC is dry, warm, and soft with rounded tannins. All blended perfectly with ripe red cherry and plum flavours. Drink not to 2025.
Damoli harvests their grapes by hand in late October. The 15 days fermentation takes place in steel tanks. The must is hand-mixed daily for a fortnight before the Ripasso process can take place. Valpolicella Ripasso is a red wine made using the Valpolicella Classico method with a second maceration over the sweet grape skins of Amarone and Recioto. Once the initial fermentation is complete, the Valpolicella Classico is blended with the grape skins of Amarone. This triggers a second fermentation adding colour, sugars, and aromatics typical of this distinguished wine. The blend is then aged for three years in oak barrels.
Damoli is a small family run business that has been handed down for five generations. Damoli's vineyards are located on the hills of Negrar and Mazzano, right in the heart of the Valpolicella Classico area. Passion, knowledge and hard work have been translated into consistently exceptional wines.
Corvina is a traditional Italian grape mostly planted in northeast Italy. Its thick skin and propensity to ripen late make this grape ideal for air drying. Corvina wines are typically light-bodied and high in acidity with notes of sour cherry, almonds and herbs.
Corvinone was not fully recognised as a grape variety in its own right until the 1990s. In fact, Corvinone was thought to be a clone of the Corvina grape. Whilst remarkably similar to Corvina with thick skins and a tendency to ripen late, Corvinone's berries are larger. Unlike Corvina, Corvinone grapes tend to produce darker wines with deeper flavours of cherry and spice.
Rondinella grapes are indigenous to Italy and are almost exclusively grown in the Veneto region. Hardly used in single varietal wines, Rondinella is one of the essential grapes in Valpolicella. Ruby red in colour with low tannins, Rondinella wines tend to be neutral with distinct herbal notes.
