2016 Torre del Falasco Valpolicella Ripasso
This red begins as a typical fresh Valpolicella Classico. The wine is then passed over the crushed skins of Amarone grapes where it goes through a second fermentation process giving the wine more flavor, body, and complexity. The result is this full-bodied, vibrant Valpolicella Ripasso. Notes of dried cherry, plum, and mocha lead into an energetic palate of red fruit, raisin, and candied cherry. A repeat buy for any occasion, this Italian red is the perfect everyday red and makes a great pairing with braised red meat, aged cheeses, and tomato-based dishes.
