We tasted: Capital San Rocco Ripasso 2015
This is a wine made using an ancient winemaking technique called “ripasso”. This consists in introducing a part of Valpolicella, produced the preceding autumn, onto Amarone wine marc after these have been decanted in March. The grapes used to produce this wine come from vineyards located on the Moraine Hills in the Valpolicella area.
This red wine has a strong ruby red. Clear and transparent. The bouquet is complexe and ample. We noticed notes of cherry, raspberry and red currant give freshness to the wine. The flavour is fruity, well-balanced and well-structured. The wine is warm and round. The after taste confirms the character of the bouquet. This wine has a long-lasting and persistent flavour with a good balance.
For the food pairing is ideal with red meat, game and cheeses.
