Rocca Sveva Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore DOC
“Fruit-forward, dry red wine… Black fruit flavors, cherries, raspberries… Rocca Sveva Valpolicella Ripasso is a delicious match for pasta dishes with red sauces, braised meats and stews.” Filippo Pedron, Winemaker Rocca Sveva Estate
70% Corvina, 25% Rondinella, 5% Molinara
The Valpolicella wine is “re-passed” for 11 to 14 days over the freshly-fermented grapes that have made the Amarone. This “re-passing” gives the wine increased structure and an appealing roundness.
30% of the wine is matured in oak barriques and 70% in large oak botti for 12-18 months. The wine is aged for an additional six months in the bottle prior to release.
Rich ruby tending to orange with additional aging.
Generous bouquet that features rich fruit aromas including dark cherry and blackberry with a smooth touch of vanilla.
Elegant balance of red and black fruit that mingle with silky tannins leading to a lengthy finish.
Wonderful when paired with pastas with spicy sauces, game and braised meats.
