Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore, Santa Sofia 2014

Santa Sofia


After stocking Santa Sofia's stunning Amarone and their very popular Pinot Grigio after our visits to Verona, we decided to explore what other wines they had to offer and they have not disappointed. This is a beautiful well balanced Valpolicella, which I feel we'll be drinking a lot of this summer.

Production area
Vineyards of hills with medium-textured soils tending to calcareous, located between the towns of Marano di Valpolicella, Fumane, San Pietro in Cariano. 

Varieties
Corvina and Corvinone grapes (70%), Rondinella (30%)

Description
Of a beautiful red ruby, limpid and very bright, with ruby-garnet, excellent seal, has a strong nose, with flavors of cherries in the spirit, prunes, pots of dried flowers, undergrowth, cloves, fine oak, cinnamon and licorice root: a wide, enveloping and aristocratic olfactory profile. In the mouth shows concentration, a silky and velvety tannic texture, a very dynamic acidity and a calibrated alcoholic warmth; of considerable intensity of taste, it closes long and clean. 

Food Pairings
Versatile in combinations, it accompanies pasta with meat sauces, semi-mature cheeses and cured meats. Game and meat such as capon and guinea-fowl, veal roasts, pork ribs with sauerkraut and Milanese cutlet.
