Wine Advocate 88 points - With the trademarked name ””Ripassa,”” the 2011 Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore Ripassa is a double-fermented wine that marries Valpolicella and Amarone grape pomace. This edition shows some of the heat of the vintage with dark fruit tones, blackberry jam and soft tannins. It should drink well for up to five or six more years. (Dec 2014)

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
