A "baby Amarone", this is complex, yet accessible wine recommended for all red meat, rich pasta dishes, spicy sausages, tangy barbecue and cheeses.
Description

Made with all the traditional grape varieties of Valpolicella. It is called Ripasso (re-passed or re-fermented) because it undergoes a special winemaking process in which the young, fruity wine obtained by the first pressing and fermentation, is fermented a second time with the skins and pomace from which Amarone has been pressed.  This process increases color, body and complexity of aromas. San Michele Valpolicella Ripasso has an intense ruby color with garnet highlights, complex aromas of blackberries, plums and fruit juice with light notes of leather, cedar and spices.  Medium-bodied and supple on the palate, polishing tannins and balanced acidity.  

The Wine Country.
