Valpolicella is a blend of red grapes from Italy’s Veneto region. Corvina, Molinara and Rondinella are used in the production of Valpolicella and Amarone. For Amarone the grapes are left to dry after picking and the resulting raisin like grapes are pressed to produced a big, elegant red wine with an elevated alcohol content with all the converted sugars from the dried grapes. Some Valpolicella producers will re-ferment the wine over the spent skins left over from making Amarone. This process adds depth, complexity and body to the wine.
Remo Farina Valpolicella Classico Superiore DOC Ripasso, 2011 is ruby red in the glass. It has aromas of dried orange, cranberry, strawberry and pepper. The palate follows the nose with added flavors of leather and earth. The tannins are smooth with a nice medium finish. This wine would go great with dishes with tomato sauce and grilled chicken and pork loin.
