2016 Tommaso Bussola Ca' del Laito Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso Veneto Italy
This single vineyard Ripasso is an intense rich and structured expression of Valpolicella Superiore. Fermented with selected yeast for ten days, then refermented on the skins of Amarone for another ten days, this compact and concentrated red wine was aged for 17 months in big oak barrels. Rich and spicy aromas, with hints of red berries, cherries, black pepper and balsamic herbs lead to a juicy and smooth palate. Intense and well structured, with a long finish.
