The San Cassiano Ripasso Valpolicella Superiore has ripe blackcurrant and hebaceous aromas lead to a medium bodied palate of cherryish fruit, with soft tannins and good acidity. Fresh with a full-bodied structure, but still light and enjoyable with any pairing. Notes of red fruit and velvety on the palate.

Ripasso is a traditional method of Valpolicella which involves a second maceration of Valpolicella Superiore wine on the skins of grapes used for Amarone, which would have been dried for at least 100 days. This second maceration usually lasts about twenty days and the resulting wine takes on further the colour and concentration from the skins, without the heaviness of an Amarone.
