Ca La Bionda Valpolicella Classico Superiore Ripasso Malavoglia
Valpolicella Classico Superiore Ripasso DOC

Grapes  Corvina, Molinara, Rondinella

Malavoglia, an unusual name for an unusual wine. It means 'I didn't want to do it' or ‘I didn't want to make it’ and he didn’t, because Alessandro doesn't really like Ripasso; he is unhappy with the idea of putting a Valpolicella onto the skins of Amarone, a process that changes the character of the wine and, in his eyes, makes it more of a cook’s wine than a wine of the land.  

Fortunately for us, his Norwegian importer appealed to his more pragmatic side by making him an offer that he couldn't refuse.  This ripasso is made to his Grandfathers' recipe where rather than resting the young wine on the skins of an Amarone, it goes onto the skins of the Recioto.  This means that no extra sugars are required to restart the fermentation and the resulting wine is well balanced and characterful.

Fig, date and black berry aromas. Hot, spiced, sweet damson fruit, very pure and defined.  14%
