Ottella Ripa della Volta Valpolicella Ripasso is made with the Ripasso method by pouring the wine from the Valpolicella onto the pressed skins of the grapes used to make Amarone. That provokes a second fermentation which gives the wine more complexity, richness and depth.
It has velvety tannins and long finish.
We love this wine because...
it's has a delicious depth to it whilst still staying well-balanced. We love the dark fruits, liquorice and coffee aromas
Pair it with...
a big lump of aged Parmiggiano and a plate of ham and salumi...
