Tasting Notes

A lively, youthful ruby wine with fresh cherry aromas that develop into a rich cherry pie character in the mouth. Body comes from soft, supple tannins that match the concentrated fruit through to the characterful finish.

Technical Notes

This wine is made using a traditional Veronese practice known as “ripasso”. Fermentation of the younge wine together with dried grape sin January following the vintage allows for more body and depth. This winemaking process, a blend of modern and traditional practices, produces a wine with a combination of freshness, structure and depth that is fairly unique among Ripasso wines.
