2011 Secoli Valpolicella Ripasso

SKU #1153878

Made from the three historic Valpolicella varietals Corvina, Rondinella, and Molinara, Secoli's Ripasso bottling features a dark ruby color and a voluptuous texture with a line of chocolately depth enriching the red fruited profile. Although ripasso winemaking is traditional in the region, Ripasso Della Valpolicella only received its DOC status in 2009. In the process, the wine that is made by conventional means and already fermented is soaked with the grape skins of the newly pressed Amarone in the winemaking cellar. Thus a new fermentation is begun and the wine gains additional richness and body.

From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages.
