TINAZZI - Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore - Veneto, Italy

TINAZZI - Valpolicella Ripasso - Corvina, Rondinella, Molinara - Veneto, ITALY

An excellent Ripasso. Hints of black cherry and dark fruit but with a very mellow earthy taste. A nose of sour cherry and leather. With over tones of raisins, figs and dark ripe fruit, with accents of wood. A very smooth and well balanced wine. A nice kick of acidity. Velvety tannins and a medium long finish.

VINEYARD

The history of the Casa Vitivinicola Tinazzi began with the commitment and passion of Eugenio Tinazzi at the end of the 1960s in Cavaion Veronese, part of the splendid hinterland of Lake Garda.

Gian Andrea Tinazzi, the founder’s son, then only 18 years of age, worked alongside his father in running the business from the outset and, thanks to his decisive and entrepreneurial character, gradually broadened the company's horizons, both in terms of production and markets.

Today, Gian Andrea’s children, Francesca and Giorgio, work with their father in managing what has become a major production group based in Lazise, on Lake Garda. The family owns vineyards and estates not only in Veneto, in the areas of Bardolino and Valpolicella, but also in another region of great character and growing qualitative potential, Apulia, a region they love and which they always believed had great winemaking potential.

The wines of the Cantine Tinazzi are now sold in more than 30 countries around the world.
