Fresh and fluid Ripasso with clean red-fruit character and just a hint of dried apple. Medium body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. Tasty. Drink now. Glass stopper.


The Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso Monti Garbi of Tenuta Sant’Antonio is born in vineyards located in the municipalities of Colognola ai Colli and Mezzane di Sotto, in the province of Verona.

It is mainly produced with Corvina, Rondinella and Oseleta grapes, harvested only by hand. After a soft pressing, the grapes ferment in barriques at a controlled temperature with selected yeasts, used for the Amarone grapes. Subsequently the wine ages in barrique for 15-16 months before being bottled.

It is characterized by a ruby red color. The nose opens with elegant hints of red fruits and cherries. On the palate it is soft, fresh and pleasantly enveloping, with a tannic body and a spicy aftertaste.
