I Progni Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore 2015 was listed as one of the 100 BEST BUY WINES in Italy in the Guide Book "I Vini d'italia 2017 de L'Espresso." We thought the 2017 was even better. We were right....it too was awarded BEST VALUE RED by the Veronelli Guide. If anything, the near perfect 2019 vintage has made this wine even richer and plusher. Terrific. James Suckling 93 points. This wine does not see appassimento, but like all Ripasso, the 2019 Valpolicella Ripasso Classico Superiore I Progni is refermented on the air-dried skins left over from Amarone. Ripasso is an ancient wine making technique used for centuries in Valpolicella, the second fermentation is on the sweet, locally dried grapes. Made with grapes sourced from a single vineyard in Valpolicella Classica, called I Progni. The blend is 70% Corvina and Corvinone, with 30% Rondinella and Oseleta. Le Salette is a small, family owned producer in the Valpolicella region of Veneto. Their 20 hectares of vines are now producing some of the very best amarones in the market, and this quality runs through their whole range. Grapes: Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella, Molinara, Croatina e Sangiovese Production method: "Ripasso-wine": initial fermenting stage in October followed by a second fermentation in March on the sweet lees of Recioto Ageing: 18 months in Slavonian oak casks (70%) and in barriques (30%). 4 months in the bottle for the final ageing process. Best served with strong flavoured pasta and red meat. It lends itself to being aged for even 5 - 7 years or longer.
