STORY BEHIND THIS WINE

Ripassa is made by passing the Valpolicella wine over the pressed, withered grapes of the Amarone for 7-8 days. This causes a second fermentation to begin, which gives a higher alcohol content and a richer wine style. Sergio Zenato was the first in the 90’s to re-discover this ancient method of wine-making, which was awarded DOC status in 2010.
