*Ripasso wines are sometimes casually referred to as “baby Amarones – aka Appassimento style here in Canada”. Ripasso is made with partially dried grape skins that have been left over from fermentation of appassimento style wine. Once the appassimento style fermentation is pressed off, we added merlot back onto the dried grape skins for approximately 8 months. This results in a full bodied, flavorful wine.
