At the end of Amarone’s fermentation, the minor blends of the wine suited for Valpolicella are refermented under the traditional technique of “ripasso” on the marcs of Amarone, at a 17 – 18°C temperature. This allows a re-fermentation lasting 7 – 8 days, during which the wine picks up full colour, extracts and flavours. After a first fining in steel, it is put in tonneau and barrique for ageing, and 4 further months in bottle.
