    (From 2006 Vintage) "The 2006 Valpolicella Classico Ripassa reveals lovely clarity and precision in its perfumed dark fruit. This vibrant, poised Valpolicella offers tons of depth and a long, refreshing finish. Zenato's Valpolicella is made from 80% Corvina, 10% Sangiovese and 10% Rondinella, and is aged in small French oak barrels. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2014."

    (From 2007 Vintage) Made by running the Valpolicella wine over the pressings (or pomace) of the firmrsquo;s Amarones (this triggering a second fermentation and adding additional depth and body), the 2003 Valpolicella Ripassa offers enticing notes of melted road tar, truffles, chocolate, jammy blackberry and cherry fruit, and grilled almonds. Full-bodied, intense, powerful, and beautifully balanced, it will drink well for 3ndash;4 years.
