The Valpolicella Ripasso “Podere Bertarole” of Corteforte is characterized by its distinctive organoleptic profile. It is a fine wine, red, still and dry, vinified from Corvina, Rondinella, Molinara grapes in the context of the types provided for by the DOP*.

Always aiming for excellence, the Corteforte winery produces only a few thousand bottles of “Podere Bertarole” every year, the quality of which is proven by the many admirers and the many awards received.Our Valpolicella Ripasso Classico Superiore “Podere Bertarole” is a wine with high extracts, alcohol and longevity.

*(Denominazione di Origine Protetta – Protected Designation of Origin) protection mark indicates origin protection, and it is attributed by the European Union to food whose quality characteristics depend essentially or exclusively on the production area and traditional production techniques.

The grapes, which are selected in a double harvest to achieve the best possible ripeness, are immediately de-stemmed and crushed.
Fermentation takes place in small stainless steel vats and is conducted until all of the sugars have been converted to alcohol with frequent pumping over to maximize extraction of color and flavour.

In April following the harvest, the wine undergoes a re-fermentation on the lees of the Amarone where it acquires greater aroma, color and body. This technique, characteristic of the best wines of Valpolicella, is named Ripasso, literally “going over”.

Valpolicella Ripasso Classico Superiore is a wine with high extracts, alcohol and longevity.
