Domaine Speri Valpolicella Ripaso Classico Superiore 2018


Ripasso is an Italian word meaning “review“, “go over again“: the winemaker uses the previously fermented leftover of Amarone to give more structure, body and flavors to the basic Valpolicella wine. 

The wine shows dark purple color with purple hue; on the nose you can sample red/ black berries (blackberry, dark cherry, raspberry), followed by herbal notes such as thyme and rosemary, finishing with hints of cocoa and meaty aromas. The wine is dry, round and rich. You can perceive the same red and black berries notes as on the nose: the wine is very juicy with a slightly sweet finish. The body is quite structured with well integrated tannin and a balanced acidity.
