SPECIFICATIONS

TASTING NOTES

Valpolicella Ripasso Classico Superiore di Santa Sofia is made from the vinification of Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella. After harvesting, the grapes are destemmed and softly crushed and then macerated for about 10 days in stainless steel, followed by 3 days of maceration and a second fermentation on Amarone and Recioto marc. After vinification, the wine is left to rest for 9 months in large Slavonian oak barrels, then for at least another 6 months directly in glass. It is a clear ruby red in colour with a slightly garnet hue. On the nose, black cherries in spirit, dried plums, dried flowers and cloves emerge. On the palate, it is full with silky, velvety tannins, well-balanced acidity and a long, clean finish. This red wine from Veneto is perfect for everyday drinking and paired with red meats.

THE WINERY

Santa Sofia

In Pedemonte, in the heart of the Veneto region and in one of the best-known areas for the production of quality wines, stands the Santa Sofia winery, inside an ancient aristocratic villa designed and built by the renowned architect Andrea Palladio. Since the 1960s, the winery has been in the hands of the Begnoni family, which has also owned it since then. With its 53 hectares of mainly stony land, the winery, under the leadership of the family, has always had the goal of expanding its distribution both nationally and internationally. Initially intending to offer all typical Veronese productions, the company has focused on specific products and selected crops over time, the products of which are harvested in the vineyard with extreme care at every single step. Today Santa Sofia produces and distributes very structured and elegant red wines, including Valpolicella Superiore Montegradella, Recioto della Valpolicella, Bardolino, Amarone, Arlèo, Merlot Corvina and Predaia. However, there is no shortage of fresh, young whites, such as Custoza, Lugana, Pinot Grigio and Soave. Name and address of producer/distributor: Santa Sofia - Via Cà Dedè, 61, 37029 Pedemonte (VR). Products from this winery should be stored in a cool, dry place away from heat sources.
