Valpolicella Ripasso ‘La Corte del Pozzo’ DOC

£15.49

Ripasso is made by mixing – or ‘re-passing’ – the lees from Amarone wine into Valpolicella, so some of the Amarone character finds its way into the bottle. This excellent example spends 16-24 months in oak barrels before being bottled and aged for 6 more months prior to release. The result is a wine of both complexity and concentration, and you can pick up those hints of Amarone quite easily. Vivid notes of wine-soaked cherries meet red and forest fruits, with subtle tones of vanilla adding further layers of flavour. There’s some structure here yet the feel is impressively smooth, with a big, lingering finish.
