A note about our product information
'Ripasso' means 'repassed' - and refers to the production process whereby fermented Valpolicella is added to a cask containing the skins and lees remaining from fermented Amarone wines. This gives extra colour, texture and flavour to the Valpolicella.
Established in 1933, Cantina Valpolicella Negrar has 230 grower members tending over 700 hectares of vineyard, mainly.
Cantina Negrar collaborates in the Scuola Nel Vigneto, a social educational project aimed at second-grade students. It aims to promote interest in and knowledge of Valpolicella’s winemaking traditions, along with its historical and environmental aspects, amongst younger generations whilst helping to develop their creativity and teamworking skills. Since 2012, over 700 young people have participated and each year the project ends with an art competition to represent the particular features and details of the Valpolicella landscape. The winning artwork is transformed into a label of the year which adorns the bottles of a special collection of wines.
