Vinification Details

  • The grapes were destemmed, crushed and fermented in stainless steel tanks to preserve freshness and the fruit character. The wine was then passed over dried grape skins, which creates a darker colour and adds an extra richness to the wine. The wine is then aged in oak before bottling.

History

  • Run by Luca Degani since 1995, the Cantina di Valpantena is now one of Italy's best co-operatives, with 700 hectares of vineyard producing excellent quality fruit.

Regional Information

  • The 2017 vintage began with a cold, rainy winter and was compounded by a late frost at the end of April. Flowering was late, beginning towards the end of May on the higher slopes, a little earlier in the lower vineyards. Sunny weather followed throughout the summer months. Overall, 2017 was a relatively challenging vintage because of the difficult start and quantities were down on the previous year. Despite this, the grapes were harvested in good condition and quality levels were high.

Great value

5 stars

Excellent ripasso. Great nose, great flavour. I'd pay twice the amount for it and still be happy. Rich, jammy and flavourful with a slight creamy ricotta note.

This is an excellent Ripasso and as good as we hav

5 stars

This is an excellent Ripasso and as good as we have found anywhere at the price. Absolutely love it and will be serving at our daughter's forthcoming wedding. All our friends who have tried it love it too. Only problem is we drink far too much of it!

Excellent flavour

5 stars

Excellent flavour, very easy drinking. We bought this red as a one off purchase but have continued to buy it ever since. It goes well with most meals, it particularly goes well with a good spaghetti bolognaise and cheese board.
