2015 Corte Rugolin Valpolicella Ripasso Classico Superiore

SKU #1370870

The winery name comes from a manor house built in the 1600s, and the property is located between the Lessini mountains and Lake Garda, providing ideal conditions for grape growing. The property is managed by twin siblings Elena and Federico Coati, who represent the fourth generation of a wine and grape growing family with a history stretching back to 1918. The Ripasso is produced by fermenting the Valpolicella Classico on the pressed Amarone grapes. According to the winery "the result is a high quality, long-lasting wine with a strong and bold character and an intense bouquet of cherries, plums and jam."

I tend to recommend this wine for people that have had Amarone in the past, loved it, but want something more affordable. Sure, this is no Amarone, however it does give you "some" of its richness and flavor profile. A quintessential Italian wine for me to have with a Lasagna a Bolognese, Risotto alla Parmigiana, Provolone, or just a juicy Spaghetti with meat sauce... Lots of Parmesan cheese!

Valpolicella has undergone an amazing transformation from the 60s Bolla version with a red-checked tablecloth to the suave and ultra-hip wine region. This ripasso is a midway point between simple and fresh and the power and size of the Amarone taking the best from both. A wine to drink straight from the bottle, with a straw or with roasted rabbit, or complex pasta dishes. Rockin' Ripasso!

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. 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. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world.
