About this wine

Concentrated flavours of ripe red and black cherry, then a spike of green peppercorn and an indulgent, rich, chocolatey fullness. Juicy, toasty and enduring.

The 2017 Massinoti Valpolicella Ripasso is created by leaving the wine in contact with the leftover grape must of the Amarone skins, resulting in the unique Ripasso style of wine. It's rich, it's powerful and it's going to knock your socks off.

Produced in Veneto, Italy

By carefully selecting the land on which to plant vineyards and by meticulously implementing agronomic practices, Massinoti has become one of the most avant-garde wineries for the production of high quality grapes. The vineyards are planted in guyot in the areas of Custoza, Bardolino and Lugana and with the classic "pergola" system in the Valpolicella Classica. These vines produce only 2-3 kg of grapes per plant and are the basis for the winery's high quality standards.

The controlled management of raw materials and the implementation of winemaking procedures using the most modern techniques to preserve the characteristics of the grapes, guarantee Massinoti's ability to produce prestigious wines.

I don’t always pair my wine with food, sometimes I like to pair my wine with films instead. There's one particular film that always makes me grab for a good Italian red like this one, and that film is Martin Scorsese's 'Goodfellas'. There are many scenes in that film where the characters are tucking into delicious pasta dishes and slurping on magenta coloured wine. With a glass of this, you almost feel like you're one of the Goodfellas!
