Valpolicella and Soave producer in the Veneto. All Estate fruit (their own grapes). Classic Veneto grapes Corvina, Corinone, Rondinella used. A Ripasso: dried Cabernet Sauvignon skins are added for a second fermentation. Very tasty results. Sweet fruits, quite rich, dark spices, cocoa, dark tobacco, dried rosemary and thyme. A good Ripasso is a great choice for wine lovers who lean toward riper California reds.
