Discover More About Our Products

Ripasso** is a traditional wine, belonging to the rural history of the Verona area. It is made according to an ancient technique known as "Ripasso", which involves a second fermentation of the young Valpolicella wine on the skins of Amarone grapes.

With the passing of time, Ripasso has become a "cult wine", and the Tommasi is among the most appreciated classics. A richly aromatic, full-bodied and complex wine that seduces the senses with its intense notes of jam and spices.

An excellent everyday alternative to the less accessible Amarone, it is perfect for pairing with earthy dishes, particularly boiled, braised and grilled meats.
