A wine that comes from the wise peasant ingenuity. In order not to waste the marc of Recioto, it was decided to “pass over” the Valpolicella wine on the skins of Amarone and Recioto, letting it absorb more complex and deeper scents. After about ten days, Valpolicella was rediscovered as a new wine, with a greater complexity of aromas and a higher alcohol content. Ripasso Costa Arente intrigues the palate with that unfailing acid background, the persuasive signature of the terroir of our hills.
The Ripasso 2017 has been inserted in the Doctor Wine guide, with a score of 91 points.
It has also been awarded with the The Wine Hunter Award in 2020, "Bollino Oro", with a score of 93-95.9/100.
