Often called a “baby” Amarone, Valpolicella Ripasso is a savory delight and a guilty pleasure (especially from Musella; quality/price here is out of this world).
This traditional winemaking method dries Corvina grapes for a month then ferments them; then the juice is “ripassato” or macerated with Amarone pomace for added depth and complexity.
Dark fruit, leather, spices; fleshy and sweet and very pleasurable.
