Italian Wines in the world
Valpolicella Classico Superiore Ripasso - ScrianiThe Cottini family has created the Scriani brand to give a name to a long family tradition in the vine growing and wine making field. The company is located in Fumane and has approximately 8 hectares of land where they grow their vines using the traditional Verona style pergola system.
Certain Ripasso stand fast even with the most acoustic banquets...
this one by Scriani is an example. While maintaining a lively colour, it begins entering its best moment when the cherry, by this time dried, steps aside and allows the black cherry in alcohol and, even more, the leather, to appear. When tasted it maintains an exemplary persistence that accompanies the important but balanced tannin and an acidity that has not yet been replaced by the time that passes. Perfect with grilled red meat, roast meat and cheese.
