Casa Lupo Valpolicella Ripasso DOC
The land is at an altitude of 450 meters above the see level and is made by the alteration of calcareous-fossilifere formations, in particular the red flake and biancone marble. The selection of the grapes and the harvest are made by hand during the last two weeks of September, to obtain a perfect maturation of the bunches. The Valpolicella, before aging, is macerated a second time on the marc of the Amarone just drawn and left to rest for about 15-20 days. Then a maturation in oak barrels of 500/1000 LT for 18 months takes place. Follows ageing in bottle that lasts until optimal maturity.
