from 260.00

2011 - Vi har været heldige at få nogle få kasser af denne kultvin. Vinen er lavet i samarbejde med Damiano Tommasi. Druerne er fra Tommasi's egen vingård i San Micheletto (et lille område i Fumane). Damiano Tommasi stammer fra Negrar og er 'nationalhelt' i Valpolicella for hans lange og flotte fodboldkarriere. Ripasso 17 hentyder til at Tommasi spillede med nummer 17 hos AC Roma. Der er kun produceret 4000 flasker i 2011 årgangen. Druer: Corvina 70% - Rondinella 20% - Molinara 5% - Croatina 5%
Citat fra Tommasi:
“ 17 signed my professional and personal story,
wine, more than anything, represents Valpolicella.

I wanted connect our stories.
since when San Micheletto became our home.
On a hill with a little church in 1200 and a little vineyard.

I have enturested to the skilled hands and the passion of Pietro
To give birth to this Ripasso
Which more than words relates the bond
Born between my family,San Micheletto and his lands.”
