Here is a vibrant ruby red wine that has received a second fermentation process of Valpolicella, essentially infusing the wine with more complexity, and that is Ripasso, meaning “re-pass,” or “go over again.” It is intense, elegant, and persistent with ripe red fruits, cherries, and hints of vanilla. This wine is harmonious, and velvety containing round tannins with a good texture. All of these things help to make it both full and round on the finish.
