This is a customer cult favourite – because La Casetta is a Valpolicella Ripasso with a difference. Most Valpolicella Ripassos are made by adding the leftover skins from Amarone production to standard Valpolicella. But with La Casetta, they go a step further. They add the skins from Recioto – a rare sweet wine which is so intense it makes Amarone look light and fresh. For Recioto, grapes are dried in the sun on straw mats for so long they lose half their volume. It intensely concentrates the sugars and flavours in the grapes – so when the leftover skins are added to normal Valpolicella it pushes it into another dimension of flavour. Tangy red cherry. Plum. Dried fruit. It’s fantastically full with a really plush texture. Perfect with mushrooms or game.

A fantastic red. We have tried lots since and nothing comes close. Trying to find something that beats it but nothing so far. It’s so smooth and drinkable highly recommended. Only valpolicell-ripasso 2018 comes close.

A class act from high up in the Valpol grading system .Light purple in colour, on the nose dark fruit, maybe tart cherry and cinnamon. In the mouth a lightish body with depths of flavour, a warming feeling in the throat , and a long tingling acid finish.

Sweeter than originally described, so be careful what you pair this with. Apart from this, dark fruit and jammy flavours come through. Mid-weight and balanced wine. Although my first ripsasso wine, this bottle has depth
