Alpha Zeta ‘R’ ,Valpolicella Ripasso

18.99

Ruby red in colour, this Ripasso opens with a concentrated perfume of red and dried cherries. Full-bodied on the palate, it shows lovely balance between opulent cherry-pie character and supple structure.
The finish is long with a mouthwatering bitter-cherry twist.

The modern approach is to ferment the young wine together with dried grapes in the January following the vintage, giving the wine more body and depth. Following fermentation, the wine is aged for just over a year in a mixture of large oak and small, French oak barrels prior to bottling
