Venturini Semonte Alto Valpolicella Ripasso
Through continous research and a passion “for the art of winemaking”, Azienda Agricola Venturini Massimino has developed in their vineyards, in the heart of the Valpolicella Classica region, a wine called “Semonte Alto”. It is a vineyard which produces a full-bodied red wine, with a rich, concentrated flavor and an intense and distinctive bouquet. In the traditional technique “Ripasso” the wine already obtained in the grape harvest is refermented by running it over the lees of the grapes used to make Amarone. This adds intensity, deep colour and body to the Valpolicella DOC Classico Superiore Ripasso, and makes it more suitable for maturing in Slovenian oak barrels.
It is a wine particularly well suited to accompany Mediterranean food, especially pasta and meat dishes. To appreciate it fully, it must be served at a temperature of 18/20°C and uncorked and allowed to breath for an hour or so.
