Poggio Al Lago 2013 Valpolicella Ripasso
Ripasso is the middle-sibling in the Valpolicella family; and as with its siblings - Valpolicella, Amarone (and big-cousin, Reciotto Della Valpolicella), the wine is a blend of the Corvina, Molinara and Rondinella grape varieties. Ripasso is produced by soaking base Valpolicella on the skins of the rack-dried grapes already pressed for production of Amarone; this re-passing of the grape skins gives the origin of the name. The result is more power, depth and concentration than a wine of it's alcohol content would otherwise naturally deliver.
