Winemaking Winemaking
This wine is made by the traditional Ripasso system in December or January when a young Valpolicella wine, made earlier in October, is then enriched with the skins of dry grapes used to make Recioto or Amarone. The Valpolicella Superiore Torre d’Orti uses the skins of Amarone. Due to the fact that Amarone is a dry wine, the ripasso becomes a de facto maceration; the fresh wine is left in contact only for 48-72 hours in order to prevent it from a refermentation which would be inevitable with the marcs of Recioto since they have high sugar content. 40% of this wine comes dried grapes from Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella varietals. The complexity and spiciness from the dried grapes balance harmoniously with the fruitiness and softness of the fresh. These two characteristics blend together harmoniously after the aging in small and medium oak barrels.
