Description

Indulge in the captivating allure of Aldegheri Ripasso, a prestigious red wine crafted for aging. This deep garnet red beauty is created from grapes hand-picked in the hilly region of Sant’Ambrogio di Valpolicella. What sets this wine apart is the process of refermenting it on the marc of classic Recioto and Amarone, imparting exquisite flavors and aromas that are sure to captivate your senses.

The complex bouquet of Aldegheri Ripasso is characterized by pronounced aromas of plum and cooked marasca cherry that make a delightful first impression. As you delve deeper into its profile, you’ll appreciate the perfect harmony of its full, robust body.

The blend of grape varieties used in Aldegheri Ripasso includes Corvina, Rondinella, Molinara, old indigenous vines, and other recommended varieties. Each grape contributes its own unique character, resulting in a wine that is both intriguing and harmonious.

The vineyards that nurture these exceptional grapes are situated in the heart of the classic Valpolicella area, to the northwest of Verona. With an average age of 28 years and some indigenous vines dating back over 50 years, the vines are deeply rooted in the Neolithic, calcareous, thin, and stony soil, adding depth and complexity to the final product.

The grapes are grown using the traditional pergola Veronese system, with more than 3,500 vines per hectare. This method ensures optimal exposure to sunlight and maximizes the potential for flavor development.

Harvesting takes place between mid and late September, with the utmost care and precision of manual picking. This meticulous process guarantees that only the highest quality grapes make their way to the cellar.

In the cellar, the grapes are destemmed and crushed to release their luscious juice. The must and marc then undergo fermentation in special heat-controlled tanks, with a device for punching the cap. This gentle process extracts the color and bouquet from the flower must without the need for pressing. The Valpolicella obtained is then aged in late winter, undergoing refermentation on the marc of classic Recioto and Amarone. This exceptional process lends the wine greater body and intensity, creating a truly remarkable tasting experience. After racking, the wine is aged in large wooden barrels, allowing it to develop and mature. Finally, it is bottled and continues to age gracefully before making its way to your glass.

Aldegheri Ripasso is the perfect companion for red meat, game, roasts, and stews. When serving, be sure to use broad-rimmed crystal glasses to fully appreciate its depth and complexity. Enjoy this remarkable wine at a temperature of 18-20°C, allowing it to reveal its exquisite flavors as it unfurls in your glass.

Immerse yourself in the enticing world of Aldegheri Ripasso, where exquisite craftsmanship and age-old traditions come together to create an unforgettable wine experience. Raise your glass and allow the captivating flavors to transport you to the heart of Valpolicella. Cheers to the exceptional taste and cherished moments.
