Speri Valpolicella Ripasso Classico Superiore
This wine is produced using the Ripasso technique, which is intentionally more restrictively applied in relation to the standard production method. The wine is obtained by going over again , once only, the premium Valpolicella Classico over a small quantity of Amarone marc, then is aged for 12 months in 20 hl. Slavonian oak barrels. As a result, an authentic local wine is produced which elegantly exhibits a delightfully complex fruity aroma and spicy tones complemented with a good acidity and just the right alcohol content.
Intense red colour; On the nose notes of red fruit, cherry, plum, sour cherry and strawberry confit, followed by cocoa and sweet savourinesss. Soft and balanced on the palate, round tannins and pleasant length on the finish, which once again offers fruit and savouriness.
The Speri Winery, one of the historical families of Valpolicella, is an authoritative and faithful interpreter of Valpolicella Classico wines that has become, due to its uninterrupted traditions and strong territorial roots, a landmark in Italian winemaking. The Speri Winery, with a story that begins in the first half of the 1800s, has now entered its seventh generation making wine from about 60 hectares of vineyards in the most select Valpolicella Classico areas.
The Winery strength has always been, and still is, a matter of teamwork, today engaging three generations – Carlo, Alberto, Giampaolo, Giampietro, Laura, Chiara, Luca and Giuseppe – that manage all stages of production activities, from the vineyard to the bottle. In 2015, after practicing years of sustainable farming, the Winery achieved organic certification for all of the production.
The Speri family, respecting its territorial heritage, has always cultivated exclusively the native grape varieties of the Valpolicella zone (Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella, Molinara and other indigenous varieties), making wine only from grapes coming from its own vineyards and itself overseeing the entire production process.
