About the wine

Showcasing an old-style method of wine-making with extraordinary results
  • After the success of my Amarone, I wanted to show Angels the Ripasso style of wine that has been made in my area for generations.
  • The grapes for my Fattori Valpolicella Ripasso come from the 12 hectars of vineyard located in Bastia, between Val d'Alpone and Val d'Illasi and are hand picked during the last two weeks of September. We then use the traditional Ripasso method to re-macerate the Valpolicella wine from the pomace from the dried Amarone grapes, before ageing in 500/1000 litre oak barrels for 18 months.
  • My wine is a ruby red colour, with soft woodland fruits, light spicy hints and with soft and balanced tannin. It's a wine that is more accessible than my Amarone, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it!

Antonio, Winemaker

Serving advice
Serve at 18-20°C. Open/Decant 5 hours before serving

Food match
Ripasso wines can be served with a number of dishes such as risotto and pasta. But they are at their best when paired with dishes like roasted veal, lamb, braised or barbequed red meats like steak, sausage and game. Ripasso also goes well with aged cheases like Parmigiano-Reggiano.
