Red Table Wine
Tenute Falezza is a family-owned and operated estate winery founded in 1974. Since then, the family estate has expanded to include 12 hectares of land in the area of San Felice, to the north-east of Verona. The Falezza family work together to produce their award-winning wines, guided by the values handed down by their grandfather: tradition, passion, and innovation.
A great wine, rediscovered by wine lovers who enjoy “old innovations”. Its peculiarity is to have the characteristics of the best Valpolicella, complemented by a “repassing” fermentation with the pomace of skins and seeds of grapes that are left from the fermentation of Amarone and/or Recioto. There’s harmony between its bouquet and its full yet balanced body.
Part “round and fruity” like Valpolicella, part “deep, dry and bold” like Amarone – Ripasso is the liaison of both styles. The winemakers “re-pass” (re-ferment) fresh Valpolicella wine on the cap of skins pressed for Amarone. As a result the wine picks up additional complexities of flavour and body, and yet stands in a class of its own. Falezza’s Ripasso is an excellent “everyday” wine and is also wonderful at the dinner table.
“Deep garnet. Captivating blend of red fruits and herbs on the nose. Silky, lively palate with generous wafts of fruit in brandy and stone fruits. Successfully blends sweetness and bitterness in a heady style, a well-crafted traditional ripasso.” 91 points, Gold, Gilbert & Gaillard, 2019
