The Valpolicella Classico Ripasso "Seccal" by Nicolis tells the soul of the wine, the soul of the earth comes from, the history of the Nicolis; a family has always been linked to the art of viticulture. We are located in San Pietro in Cariano, in the heart of the Classic Valpolicella, and the sensitivity with which the Nicolis family cultivates the vine is something unique. Small valleys and rolling hills, mild climate and rich beautiful promises; promises that with time have always been kept, promises that give rise to unique wines such as Valpolicella Classico Ripasso "Seccal", fermented in a second maceration on the skins still intact and sweet of Amarone and Recioto. A "Ripasso", in fact, that gives more body to the wine evolves nicely even in its aroma, its color and its alcohol content. So we have a wine that more maturation for the "Seccal" up to 16 months in Slavonian oak casks. A Valpolicella Classico Ripasso who gave us her scent more authentic, more intense and more distinctive: ripe fruit, hints of spice and hints of tobacco. A Valpolicella Classico Ripasso from the great body, generous and persistent, which is always a very good figure when you are a guest at a dinner party.
