BLACK CHERRY & PRUNE, CLOVE, LEATHER & TOASTY OAK This region is home to several distinct styles of wine starring the Corvina grape, including standard Valpolicella, the dried grape version called “Amarone,” and “Ripasso,” which falls somewhere in between. Ripasso begins like regular wine from standard grapes, but later on dried grapes are added prior to a second fermentation. This adds color, depth, body, and additional flavors, bringing out raisins, cherry, and sweet spices. Serving Suggestion: Risotto w/ pork sausage, black pepper, rosemary & cinnamon. Lamb stew w/ carrots, prunes, cloves, & potatoes. Gnocchi w/ mushrooms & gorgonzola.
