Sartori “Regolo” Valpolicella Ripasso
Ripasso is an Italian term that literally means ‘re-passed.’ It refers to the technique of adding the unpressed skins from Amarone wines that have used dried grapes for their ferment to the Valpolicella wine. This adds body, flavour, tannin and alcohol to the finished wine. This wine is 60% from the native Corvina grape which is blended with other native varieties Corvinone and Rondinella to make their own rock band! The grapes are grown in the hills of Valpolicella. The resulting wine is ripe with prune and dried raisin characters yet elegant with a fine structure. The tannins are soft and the acidity stops the wine from being overbearing.
