Product Description

The 2011 Valpolicella Ripasso Classico Superiore Solane is a 70-30 blend of Corvina and Rondinella. This well-priced Italian red would pair nicely with sausage pizza or pasta thanks to its dark consistency and subtle sweetness. A point of refreshing acidity keeps the palate refreshed. Drink 2014-2017

This offers scents of black fruit, prune and underbrush, followed by blackberry, raisin and chocolate flavors. It doesn’t have much complexity, but the simple and straightforward style is enjoyable. - K.O.

Summary

Santi Valpolicella Classico Superiore is a "ripasso" method Valpolicella; meaning that following primary fermentation the wine sees a second fermentation with the addition of Amarone grapes and skins, creating a richer, more complex and more exciting final wine.

Terroir: Santi Solane is sourced from estate vineyards within the original Valpolicella appellation of Valpolicella Classico.

Vinification: When primary fermentation is complete in early winter, grapes, skins and pomace from Santi's Amarone are added to the vats. The additional sugars from the Amarone trigger a second fermentation which adds additional layers of complexity, rich fruit and structure. The wine is blended and then aged for more 3-5 months in small oak cask followed by an additional 12 months in larger neutral casks prior to bottling. - Winery
