Valpolicella Ripasso DOC Classico Superiore 2017 – Novaia 🇮🇹



Helaas niet meer beschikbaar. Neem contact op voor alternatief advies.

Een wijn van de druiven Corvina, Corvinone en Rondinella met een diep rode kleur met een krachtige aroma van de Ripasso methode, een tweede fermentatie met de druivenschillen van de Amarone. Deze Ripasso heeft droge afdronk en is niet te krachtig beïnvloedt door de overrijpe druiven waardoor de wijn een goede structuur heeft met een prettige droge afdronk met goede balans, medium zuurgraad en verfijnde maar aanwezige tannines.

Lees hier uitgebreide info over Novaia.

In one of the most suggestive corners of the High Valpolicella Classica, on the top of a soft hill, a wide fifteenth-century manor house dominates the Marano valley and the plain that separates it from the ancient Roman city of Verona: Novaia.

Novaia means a new court, a new family in the Marano Valley.

In the fifteenth century the Villa was built and the Vaona family moved here from the city in 1700. The Vaona Family quickly bought the surrounding lands and gained a prominent role in the local community.

With the nineteenth century the estate of the Vaona family expanded further, as attested by the notary documents of the time that included the Vaona family among the most important landowner families: the estate produces grapes, wines, oil, cherries, corn and silkworms.
