la casetta

Valpolicella Ripasso ‘La Casetta’

A big, boisterous wine. Cassis, dried cherry, fig, prune, leather, mocha, smoke and game all take shape in this extroverted, juicy wine, loaded with richness but with enough structure to pull it all off.

The addition of 10% cabernet sauvignon means La Casetta has darker fruit notes and more structure than most valpolicella ripasso wines.
