Wine Profile

Tasting Notes On the nose are aromas of red and black cherries, with the ripasso adding a dried cherry intensity. Full-bodied on the palate, with lovely balance between opulent cherry-pie character and supple structure. Good length with a mouthwatering twist.
Production Notes This wine is made using a traditional Veronese practice known as "ripasso". Traditionally, the young Valpolicella wine was re-fermented on the skins of the Amarone grapes once they had finished fermenting in March. The new, more expensive approach is to ferment the young wine together with dried grapes in the January following the vintage, giving the wine more body and depth. This blend of modern and traditional winemaking produces a wine with a combination of freshness, structure and depth that is fairly unique among Ripasso wines. Matt Thomson feels that 2009 is “probably the best harvest that I`ve seen here since I started making wine in the region in 1999. The wines are full and ripe with excellent aromatic qualities.
Food Pairing Notes A fantastic red to pair with a multitude of Italian dishes such as spaghetti, lasagna and especially pizza!
