Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore, Marogne, Zeni 2017
Ripasso is fermented on the lees of Amarone and so gives this wine a rich, concentrated flavour of black cherries and blackberries together with a mellow smoothness.

Established in 1870, near Lake Garda just above Bardolino. Fausto, Elena and Federica Zeni supplement their own production with bought-in grapes from growers on long-term contracts. They now manage 25 hectares of vineyards and export over 80% of their production. Bright red! Round and approachable with enough savour as opposed to being too sweet. Rather charming. I’d love this with some prosciutto. 14%. 16/20
