Farina Valpolicella Ripasso Classico Superiore DOC Riserva "Montecorna" 2020


| /

Savvy Wine

This wine is produced only with autochthonous grapes from the vineyard with the same name, located in the Valpolicella Classica hills. As a result of the refermenting process on the Amarone lees of young Valpolicella processed in October, and using the traditional “ripasso” technique, this wine gains a fuller body and stronger aromas. It has a sharp and bold character, with good structure, balanced by a perfect harmony between fruit and spices.

Production Technique
Manual harvesting from mid-September.

Vinification: Pressing and destemming immediately after harvesting. Fermentation with a good maceration and at least two pumping overs per day, racking and cleaning. The refermentation on the marc of Amarone in January gives it deeper color, structure, and alcohol.

Ageing: 50% in Slavonian oak barrels of 20 and 50 Hl, 50% in barrique, following ageing in the bottle

Wine Description
Deep ruby red color. Complex, fruity of sour cherry and plum jam, with spicy vanilla notes, leather, roasted coffee. Enveloping, compact, but refined and harmonic.

Winemaker’s recommendations
