Santa Margherita Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore

RM140.0

The grapes are picked when fully ripe, crushed and de-stemmed. The must thus obtained ferments (with maceration on the skins) for two weeks in stainless steel at relatively low temperatures, in order to retain its characteristics of fragrance and freshness. Following the malolactic fermentation the wine remains in tank until the end of winter, when it is re-fermented for some 10-15 days on the grape pomace of the Amarone (which has just completed its initial fermentation). The wine resulting from this ‘ripasso’ technique matures for nine months in large casks and tonneaux, and then for a further six months in bottle.
Deep red in color, on the nose this wine displays a bouquet characterized by notes of black cherries and wild berries, enriched with balsamic nuances and hints of herbs and spices. On the palate it is full-bodied yet lively, with fruit that is rendered vibrant by fresh acidity and a tangy, slightly saline vein. The tannins are silky and the finish is reminiscent of black fruits and sweet spices.

Description

Over 80 years ago, Count Gaetano Marzotto led the revitalization of an abandoned portion of the Venetian countryside. Here, where rivers from the alps cut through the sun-drenched hills on their winding way to the Mediterranean shore, he created much-needed farmlands and restored traditional wine-making in what had been a region of fine vineyards since the time of the Roman Empire. Employing new agricultural science and a commitment to the needs of the Italian people, Marzotto gave this labor of love the name of his dear wife Margherita, and the first piece in the mosaic of Santa Margherita was set.

Since then, Santa Margherita has grown to encompass vineyards across Italy, from the Veneto to Tuscany, producing distinctive, authentic wines of deep tradition and regional character. Their wines are crafted for the evolving tastes of today’s fine wine lovers, and invite you to pair the people and foods in your life with the Pinot Grigio they were made famous, the brilliant Prosecco, complex Chianti Classico Riserva or delicate Sparkling Rose.
Their entire organization to the highest levels of social responsibility and environmental sustainability while remaining committed to their Italian heritage.
