750ml

The deep ruby red color of the Ripassa, and the intense yet fine aromas come from the mixture of grapes. It is full bodied, harmonic, and velvety on the palate. Recommended with grilled meatdishes, Ripassa is excellent with beef casserole. This blockbuster wine is an Alberta favourite.

Grape Variety: 85% Corvina, 10% Rondinella, 5% Oseleta.

 

Wine Profile

other notes

Zenato is a company that possesses a strong link to the richness of its local history and culture, and continues to develop this connection today. The estate is based in a territory that surrounds Lake Garda, an area with an extraordinary microclimate that allows for an optimal growing season. The Zenato family is passionate in their dedication, vigorous research and innovation.

The company started with Sergio Zenato and his wife Carla as they began to produce quality wines from an indigenous varietal, Trebbiano di Lugana, and it has been passed down through the generations to their children. Currently, their daughter Nadia handles the marketing and promotional activity for the company, and their son Alberto oversees all aspects of production, from the growing of the vines to the time when the bottling process is complete.

Over time Zenato has explored another very important area of Italian wine production, Valpolicella, where they have dedicated endless efforts to the improvement and success of Amarone production, a wine of noble attributes and prestige. Zenato has entered into international markets and received the highest accolades from the wine industry's leading experts. Today, Zenato continues to look forward and make investments to develop projects based both in the area of Valpolicella and the area of Lugana.

production notes

Ripassa Zenato is made by “repassing” Valpolicella wine over the pressed, withered grapes of Amarone. This is a significant mark of the science of wine making left by Sergio Zenato who, in the nineties, rediscovered an ancient method of Valpolicella by then long neglected, the "ripasso", and was the first to create a great wine that, since 2010, has held protected denomination of origin status.
