Wine Advocate 89 points - The 2010 Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore Ripassa shows clean lines with cherry fruit and dark plum backed by pretty tones of savory spice and cured meat. “Ripassa” was among the first “Ripasso-style” wines made in this area and its fantasy name actually predates the denomination name. Bold darkness and ripe fruit flavors penetrate the finish. Drink 2014-2018. (Oct 2013)

Zenato gives the name “Ripassa” to this wine, which shares many of the characteristics of our Amarone. As soon as the fermentation is completed of the dried grapes for the Amarone, selected lots of Valpolicella are then “re-passed” on the Amarone pomace, thus initiating a second fermentation which increases slightly the alcoholic content and gives the wine deeper colour, increased extract, and more complex aromas. After 6 months’ bottle-ageing, the result is a rounded, velvet-textured wine with rich, complex aromas of berries and an impressively lengthy finish that seems to linger forever. Ripassa represents one of the most important milestones in Zenato’s winemaking evolution.
Food pairing
excellent companion to game dishes, grilled meat and roasts, salami and aged cheeses
