Made in the traditional 'ripasso' method, where a second fermentation of the wine takes place on the skins of the grapes used to make Amarone - a typically Italian way of getting the most out of produce. A rich style, with lovely aromas of plums, cherries and dark chocolate and flavours of raisins and nutmeg. Ideal with red meats and spicy Italian dishes but the wine is also suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

Buy this if...you have never tried Ripasso.



'This has a delicious quality of bittersweet cherry and dark chocolate with a real rip of freshness and tang on the finish.' The Wine Gang 2015

The Producer

Sourcing grapes from over 700 hectares of vineyards and 250 growers, the Cantina Valpantena is one of Italy's largest and best co-operatives, situated in the Valpantena valley, north of the city of Verona. Established in 1958, the co-operative now makes wines from the surrounding appellations, with the Torre del Falasco wines showing their commitment to quality.

The Winemaker

Consultant winemaker Matt Thomson, who makes some of our other wines around the world, has been consulting at the Cantina since 1999.

The Region

With cool mountain breezes blowing directly down from the Dolomites and limestone soils on steeply sloped vineyards, the Valpantena valley in the Veneto region of north-eastern Italy is the perfect location for the production of both red and white wines. This is Valpolicella country, the grapes for which are grown on the steeply terraced hillside vineyards belonging to the cooperative, where soils are chalky and poor.

Ripasso

'Less sweet than many commercial Ripasso bottlings - and none the worse for that - this is also showing a bit of bottle-aged complexity, combining notes of plum, strawberry and fig, a nip of tannin and no obvious oak. The combination of fruit, acidity and residual sugar is very well handled here.' Tim Atkin, June 2016

Blue Cheese Burgers

Burgers are red wine are a match made in heaven but don't forget the blue cheese element which could scuper your wine choice. To contrast the creamy, salty notes (not forgetting acidity) of the cheese, head to full, fruity reds with good acidity - fresh Italian styles such as Valpolicella are a good bet.

BBQ Lamb Kebabs

Pair grilled or barbecued lamb with lightly oaked reds - try blends including Syrah or Grenache or fresh northern Italian styles.

Skirt Steak with Chimichurri Sauce

This robust, flavoursome cut is nicely balanced by the punchy, herby sauce. Skirt needs a relatively well-structured red to soften the meat flavours but remember not to go too full-bodied or risk drowning out the green sauce.
