The first reference to this wine goes back to the 5th century A.D. in a letter of Cassiodoro, minister of king Theodoric, who was looking for red "Acinatico" for the royal meals. This Read More...
was a red wine made during the Winter months with wilted grapes; it was very difficult to get, at least in large quantities and was produced in the hills around Verona. It is remarkable that after so many centuries this wine is still produced with the same technique and the same care.

Colour very intense purple red. Bouquet typical of dried fruit with scent of violet. Flavours are slightly sweet with; the balance between tannin, sugar and acidity exalts the scent of dried fruit which persists long in the palate.

This dessert wine is particularly suited for cakes and pies: "pasta frolla", "Sbrisolona" (typical of Valpolicella), Cantucci, bitter chocolate; in Verona it is traditionally served with "Pandoro"

fermenting in March. The new more expensive approach is to ferment the young wine together with dried grapes in the January following the vintage, giving the wine more body and depth. This blend of modern and traditional winemaking produces a wine with a combination of freshness, structure and depth that is fairly unique among Ripassos. Following fermentation, the wine is aged just over a year in a mixture of large and small French oak barrels. The Back Story: AZ wines are selected and designed by a group of Brooklyn wine lovers who wanted to import delicious and stylish Italian wines to share with their friends. Ripasso offers a lot of the wonderfully ripe flavors of the Amarone at a much lower price without sacrificing the process that make a Ripasso a Ripasso: a process that is actually quite special and rewarding.

TASTING NOTES - Rich cured meats, red fruit liqueur, caramelized brown sugar and sultry earth tones make for a nice complex nose. The palate is loaded with raspberry in multiple permutations-- this is ripe and juicy yet not overly sweet as it finishes almost off-dry as notes of vanilla bean and framboise echo on the palate for minutes.
