Valpolicella Ripasso Classico Superiore DOC

 17,95

“From Paolo Creazzi’s vineyards in Camparsi in the municipality of Fumane. Hand-picked grapes plus a substrate of amarone ripasso as a breeding ground. From a year that produced ‘Big Red’. You would fear chewable or spreadable models. Fruit compote with Limburg flan ambitions on a bed of Bon Maman jam?

None of that. Pleasantly firm, but like a well-trained ballet dancer who, supported by purple violets, sways lightly from blackberry bed to rosehip bush, kissing Redcurrant awake, revealing his fig leaf and making a plié towards a bowl of roasted nuts.”

– Hamersma (2021)

Vinification

From the vineyards located in Camparsi in the municipality of Fumane come the red grapes used to produce the first vintage of this Valpolicella Ripasso Classico. Cà Dei Maghi has decided to dedicate a label to Camparsi vineyard grapes. This is to distinguish them from the grapes from the vineyard on Mount Sant’Urbano. This decision was made with a view to reinforcing an idea that Paolo Creazzi and his family have always held dear, that of “CRU” (high quality vineyard) wine. The grapes used for the Valpolicella Ripasso Classico are freshly picked by hand. In addition, the Amarone Ripasso grapes from the same vineyard are also used. Finally, an aging takes place in small barrels for 24 months

Colour

The brilliant and ruby red color in the glass portends a fresh and elegant wine. But the color does not neglect the richness and structure that characterize the name of this wine.

Odor

On the nose, this wine from Cà Dei Maghi reveals notes of slightly wilted red flowers. Like wild violets and rosehip.

Taste impression

In the mouth, the wine enters in a delicate, broad and dry way. It is full of lively and elegant tannins, accompanied by light hints of berries in the finish. Finally, there is an excellent final taste that gives great persistence in the mouth.

Culinary advice

Given its medium body and fruity and sweet notes, the Valpolicella Ripasso Classico is ideal to drink while eating red meat from the barbecue, for example. For vegetarian dishes, combinations with spicy and aged cheeses, risottos and pronounced vegetables are excellent options.

Jancis Robinson

“Dried cranberries, smoke and licorice. So velvety you could almost rub it against your cheek. Purring with contentment and the red-hot glow of its own warmth and hygge. But the finely spun acidity and waltzing grace – hibiscus tea, rosehip syrup, a slight nod to licorice, a pinch of cinnamon and a deep-drawn vortex of juicy, rose petal-scented fruit cannot be overlooked. I am fascinated. (TC)”
