Buglioni Ripasso Valpolicella Classico Superiore Il Bugiardo
Tasting note: “If this is not Amarone, then it is a lying wine!” This was the exclamation of an experienced sommelier, when he tasted our first Ripasso wine in 2000, a flukey incident which gave birth to the name of our wine. Dark ruby red colour. Intense and elegant aroma of ripe fruit and spices, with a slight scent of vanilla and tobacco. Persistent and warm flavour, velvety and harmonic.
Today, Buglioni own 36 hectares (89 acres) of vines planted to the traditional indigenous varieties of Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella, Molinara, Oseleta, Croatina and Garganega. The lightly textured, gravelly, dark alluvial soil, meticulous vine pruning, and scrupulous control techniques Buglioni employs ensure the production of high-quality grapes.
