Luigi Righetti Ripasso Selezione, Veneto, Italy, 2019 (750ml)
This is Luigi Righetti’s premium Ripasso, which is a selection of the best Valpolicella which is then macerated for 14 days on the skins from the Amarone. The sugars in the Amarone skins trigger a second fermentation, boosting the alcohol a bit and contributing some some rich, dried fruit flavours to the finished wine. It is then aged in small oak barrels for smoothness and adding notes of vanilla and spice.
This is a supple, round, charming wine ideal for pot roasts or venison. You will find aromas of cherry, sweet spice, raspberry jam and leather in this dry, long-finishing wine. Drink now and over the next 4 years. 13.8% alc.
