Special notes

Valpolicella, located west of the Italian region of Veneto, is one of the most famous red wine production zones in the country, along with the Chianti area. This wine is, most offen, a blend of Corvina Veronese, Rondinella and Molinara grapes. The Ripasso (literally "pressed") is a process that requires special attention: the red wine marc (the dried grape skins) from the fall's fermentation, is added to the red wine that has been fermenting since the beginning of the year. This process takes 15 days to complete.
