Montigoli Valpolicella Ripasso Classico is such great value Ripasso we just couldn't say no. There are intense aromas of plum and bramble fruita and the palate is complex with ripe dark fruits, spice and supple tannins. Ripasso is made by enriching traditional Valpolicella wine with the dried grapes used for Amarone, which leads to a smooth, rich wine with a touch of opulence, without being overpowering.

The traditional grape varieties are destemmed and pressed, then fermented in barrel at around 20ºC for 2 weeks - malolactic fermentation also takes place. It spends around 16 months in 100% Slavonian oak. 'Ripasso' means 'repassed' - and refers to the production process whereby fermented Valpolicella is added to a cask containing the skins and lees remaining from fermented Amarone wines. This gives extra colour, texture and flavour to the Valpolicella.
