Cantina di Negrar Valpolicella Ripasso Classico Superiore DOC

The Cantina di Negrar brand is the soul of Cantina Valpolicella Negrar and pays homage to the philosophy of cooperative production while also recalling the territory’s historical vestiges: the effigy of St. Mark’s Lion standing tall on a column in the centre of Negrar is testimony of the Venetian Republic’s domination in the sixteenth century. The Cantina di Negrar wines are rooted in the wine-making tradition of Valpolicella and the Veronese wine-growing areas, with a modern reinterpretation to guarantee the best price/quality ratio.

This Ripasso Valpolicella is made from grapes grown in the heart of the Valpolicella Classica area, in the town Roselle in the hills of Negrar. His style emphasizes the profile of the typical and traditional Valpolicella: a well-distributed harmonic structure of flavor, smell and taste, creating a unique style of simplicity and elegance.
