On our hills, the privileged soil condition and the right proportion of the vines allow us to obtain this Valpolicella wine, which is known all over the world. With respect to the Valpolicella Classico, the Superiore denomination indicates an ageing period of at least two years. The name Ripasso derives from the technique used to obtain a wine that has a higher alcoholic content, is more colorful and full­bodied and presents a more complex bouquet. The technique consists in letting the Valpolicella Classico re­ferment on the marcs of our Amarone wine. After an appropriate ageing period in wooden barrels and a refinement period of a few months in bottle, the wine is brought to market.

Wine Maker

BONAZZI BADIN The farm is situated in the heart of the Valpolicella Classica area. The name “Classica” refers to the unique small area north of Verona where Amarone, Recioto and Valpolicella have always been produced. That is, before the DOC and DOCG production area was extended in 1968. Our wine cellar and its surrounding vineyards are located in this privileged territory, in a wonderful elevated position on a south-facing hill. Since the second half of the 18th century, we, the Bonazzi family - initially as sharecroppers - have cultivated, with love and respect, a total of 8 hectares mainly planted with vines, as well as olive and cherry trees. Later, in 1962, Alessandro Bonazzi acquired the houses and the land and established the farm. At the same time, his sons Mario, Angelo and Luciano continued his work, enhancing the winemaking part of the business. They made important land improvements and received great recognition from the local market, also thanks to prestigious wine competitions, in which Bonazzi wines have always made the company excel. Nowadays, Giorgio and Ivo, grandsons of Alessandro, continue the farming and wine-making activities with passion and great dedication, focusing on certain aspects that we consider crucial: environmental impact, respect for traditions and hospitality.
