The story! This wine contains the ghost of Amarone, and is too often overlooked. Ripasso is made by passing fresh red wine over intensely concentrated grape must from Amarone production, becoming deeper and richer in the process. Its unusual richness immediately drew us in, and now we tell it how beautiful it is everyday. 

In your mouth: Inviting aromas of chocolate, cherry, and tea draw you in to my dark garnet depths. The cherry leads you onward, shaped by tannin and supported by whispers of spice. My flavors amble to a silk finish.
