Valpolicella Ripasso DOC Superiore “Il Vegro” 2017 – Brigaldara
Intense ruby red color; aromas of ripe fruit and spices that we find at the tasting. A good body with pleasant sapid notes in closing.
The Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore Brigaldara is cultivated in the municipality of San Pietro at an altitude of 150-200 meters on silty clay soil; the manual harvest takes place in October and is in a box with selection in the vineyard. The Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore Brigaldara has a long fermentation with frequent pumping over; matures in 25hl barrels then ages in bottle for 6 months
Every year Brigaldara produces around 300,000 bottles from the ca. 50 hectares of vineyards. Brigaldara ’s mission has always aimed at the production of quality wines that represent its territory. This philosophy is put into practice by constantly searching for the perfect balance between growth and fruit production in each vineyard, without forcing the plants.
The cellar is structured into two different levels in order to preserve the peculiarities of our grapes. This enables us to move the wine naturally, using gravity, without exposing it to unhealthy external pressures. Great attention is paid to the fermentation phase, which is spontaneous and tries to guarantee maximum expression to the wine. Refinement is carried out by using both large and small woods, carefully selected to ensure the respect of the bouquet.
