Vantini Valpolicella Ripasso 2012

R 234.00

At the beginning of the last century in the heart of the historical Valpolicella area, Angelo Vantini thought it would be a good idea to cultivate some of the family’s land by planting valuable and sturdy vines. His decision lead to the founding of a company that would continue for generations to come.

The history, the desire to uphold traditions, the culture of the vineyard, the experience within the winemaking business, technology and modern marketing have all fused harmoniously together in order to keep the initial origins alive. The results of these synergies are a series of wines that have been able to encompass the sun, the earth and the labour in the final product, which is also very well known for its quality.
