The traditional grape varieties are destemmed and pressed, then fermented in barrel at around 20ºC for 2 weeks - malolactic fermentation also takes place. It spends around 16 months in 100% Slavonian oak. 'Ripasso' means 'repassed' - and refers to the production process whereby fermented Valpolicella is added to a cask containing the skins and lees remaining from fermented Amarone wines. This gives extra colour, texture and flavour to the Valpolicella.
