Valpolicella Classico Superiore Ripasso Tamburino Sardo
The production phase of this wine begins with a short period of drying of the grapes. Subsequently these grapes are pressed and fermented for 20/25 days in contact with their skins.
This is followed by refermentation in contact with the Amarone marc, which exploits the residues of must-wine retained in them, a traditional technique, used in the area of origin, to enhance the Valpolicella Superiore. From this second fermentation we obtain a product with a peculiar structure and known with the name of Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso.
Strong ruby red color; intense, elegant aroma; aromatic complexity that is proposed with fruity notes with a prevalence of cherry and morello cherry; savory to the taste, spicy and of good texture, these are the characteristics that make this wine unique in its kind.
The grapes come from the historic area of Marano di Valpolicella (Classic area). It ages for 16 - 18 months in steel barrels; 6 months of bottle aging.
