‘R’ VALPOLICELLA, Alpha Zeta 2017

£15.75

Description

Made using a modern approach to the traditional practice of Ripasso, the young wine is re-fermented with dried grapes in the January following the vintage, giving it more intensity and adding dried cherry note to the characteristic cherry Corvina perfume.

Ruby red in colour, this Ripasso opens with a concentrated perfume of red and dried cherries. Full-bodied on the palate, it shows lovely balance between opulent cherry-pie character and supple structure. The finish is long with a mouthwatering bitter-cherry twist.
