VALPOLICELLA RIPASSO SUPERIORE DOCG 2015
12 in stock
Corvinone, Rondinella, and Oseleta vines that are over 60 years old are used to make Valpolicella Superiore Falezze DOC: the SW-NE aspect and calcareous soils, well drained and rich in gravel, give the mouth and nose distinct perceptions of forest fruits, wild strawberries and whortleberries, sour cherries and ripe morello cherries. The grapes are harvested in September-October and subjected to short natural appassimento drying. After fermentation, ageing in French oak tonneaux. On the palate the wine is well structured and supple, with the minerality typical of the Falezze estate, and a persistence in the mouth that calls for another sip. To be enjoyed alone or with an ample range of pairings. Bottled in Bordeaux bottles, numbered by hand, with one-piece natural cork.
