San Cassiano

Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore

In rural Valpolicella, in the middle of a small natural paradise among green olive trees and vines, the San Cassiano Winery was founded in 1964. Since every vineyard should have its own specific wine, the characteristics are carefully considered in all stages of production. The idea: each wine is a photograph of the vineyard to which it belongs.

The mash of the Amarone is added to the mash of the Ripasso Valpolicella. As the grapes of the Amarone are very intense and aromatic due to their drying for about 100 days, the mash of the Ripasso becomes more complex. This new mixture gets fermented together again. Therefore the wine is called Ripasso, which means repetition.
