The Ripasso “Lenotti Family Collection” is a unique wine. You won't always find it available. Only the best vintages, which we judge as perfect, will see the birth of this wine. We are extremely rigorous in our production choices and we just want to offer you the best.

It is produced from one of our most prestigious vineyards: “La Grola”. 13 hectares in the heart of Valpolicella Classico area, cultivated with Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella, with a perfect exposure to the west, which benefit from the positive influence of the winds coming from the Adige valley from the north.

In addition to the rigorous selection of the grapes selected during the season with manual quantity reduction and harvested by hand, the double fermentation in contact with the skins after the fermentation of our "Lenotti Family Collection" Amarone, what’s special in this wine is the exclusive barrel aging. A few Ripasso on the market can in fact announce an aging of 24 months in barrels and even less realize it with our unique micro-humidification system for the barrels. With this technic we are able to better balance the quantity of oxygen in contact with the wine and help a very delicate release of the aromas and flavors of the wood. A unique and avant-garde system to allow a stable and extremely balanced aging of the wine.

The cask aging is then followed by an aging in the bottle of at least 8 months which guarantees an always perfect final result and a wine that is always ready to offer the "maximum" satisfaction. You will notice it at the first taste….

Maximum production is about 800 bottles, individually numbered for each vintage. Will you be able to find your favorite bottle number?
