Ripassa della Valpolicella Classico: 2011, Zenato

This wine is closely connected to the greatest wine of Valpolicella: Amarone. After pressing the dried grapes from which Amarone is made, this Valpolicella is passed over the still warm mark of Amarone. A second alcoholic fermentation begins, increasing the alcoholic content and the wine becomes richer in colour, bouquet and body. The colour is a deep ruby red. Bouquet is intense, elegant and persistent. On the palate it is harmonious and velvety, with a good structure.

The mousse is white, lively and decidedly persistent. The perlage is fine and continuous, with abundant head. The colour is bright and yellow with marked greenish tinges. The bouquet is broad and enticing, embracing nuances of sweet ripe fruit (Decana pears) along with subtle hints of chlorophyll and vanilla. The flavour matches the nose, and the aftertaste is tangy and satisfying. Its depth and remarkable harmony blend into its outstanding elegance. Its vibrant character is sustained without the least compromise by a freshness that preserves its persistence.
