Sartori Valpolicella Classico Superiore Ripasso “Regolo” DOC 2017
A blend of 55% Corvina, 25% Corvinone, 15% Rondinella, 5% Croatina. Ruby red with garnet hues. Berries, black currants, black cherries, and spices and with hints of chocolate. Rich, full-bodied, dry and velvety, packed with baked fruit, dried fruit, and hints of cocoa and vanilla on the lingering finish.
Fermentation at controlled temperature for 8-10 days. The characteristic of this product is the subsequent “ripasso” of the wine of Amarone in the month of February. During this second fermentation the extraction of the tannins which ensure the longevity that characterizes this wine as well as the extraction of the typical aromas of Amarone are favoured.
After malolactic fermentation, the wine is aged for about 18-24 months. This also includes aging in medium and large barrels. After bottling the wine rests for at least 6 months in bottle.
