Ripasso is a traditional technique that promotes a second fermentation through the wine’s contact with warm dried grape skins from which Amarone has been pressed. This practice increases slightly the alcoholic content and enriches the wine with a greater concentration of sugar, glycerine, polyphenolic substances and aromas. The wine then matures in 30-hectoliter (660 gallon) Slavonian oak barrels for 1 year and for a further six months in bottle.
Technical notes
ALCOHOL LEVEL 13% vol.

Food pairing
A particularly fine accompaniment for all meat dishes, savory preparations of the rural tradition and cheeses that have been aged for moderate to long periods.

Producer
Casa Vinicola Zonin is one of Italy’s most important privately-owned wine-producing companies and is also one of the foremost worldwide. It distributes and markets the still and sparkling wines under the Zonin label as well as those of the family’s nine Estates. Inspired by the principle “each region has its own traditions, each region has its own wines” Gianni Zonin has, since the end of the 1960s, been selecting outstanding terroirs, bringing Casa Vinicola Zonin to its present area under vine of around 2.000 hectares, supervised by a team of 32 oenologists and agronomists. These make up 9 Estates situated in Italy’s 7 finest Regions for wine production, as well as a property in the United States, Barboursville Vineyards in Virginia. Different production areas, each with its own specific terroir and its own peculiarities in terms of climate and morphology, the experience and professionalism of our agronomists and oenologists and the choice of dynamic business strategies: these are the most important values on which our company’s philosophy is based.
