Le Preare Valpolicella Ripasso Classico Superiore DOC

The brand Le Preare was created by Cantina Valpolicella Negrar to pay tribute to a history, where previous generations very often paid a very high price, allowing todays generation of vine growers to benefit from the hard work of their forefathers.
Located in the heart of the Valpolicella Classico, this area was also known for its prestigious stones, such as the red marble of Verona. It was widely used by the Venetians when building their villas. However, the use of other local stones, less prestigious then marble, was wide spread. The antique mines where the stone was taken, were called “preare” in local dialect. The local stones were used to separate the vineyards and also to build the terraces, allowing the vines to grow also on steep slopes.

This Ripasso Valpolicella is made from grapes grown in the Valpolicella Classica. 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.
