2017 L'Arco Valpolicella Classico Ripasso
The Estate takes its name from a stone arch, called “Arco di Giove”,
well in sight on the road to Negrar (one of the seven historic Valpolicella counties)
and near the farmhouse where the Fedrigo family resided until a few years ago.
The arch, dating from 1500/1600, was one of a series of seven arches along
the hillside path near S. Vito di Negrar. Wine made from autochthonous Valpolicella grapes (corvina, rondinella, molinara).
For produce this wine is used the traditional technique of Ripasso which consists
in a second alcoholic fermentation on Amarone’s marcs.
Ruby red coloured, intense bouquet and excellent structure.
It combines very well with grilled meat dishes.
Where: Veneto, Italy
What: Valpolicella Blend
How: This decadent little number deserves a decant for about 4 hours and to be drank with grilled meat
