Corte Alta, situated in Valpolicella Classica on Fumane’s hills in the Cavalo hamlet, stands 500 meters above sea level and comprises 10 hectares of vineyards growing traditional Corvina, Corvinone, and Rondinella grape varieties native to the region. This project was initiated in 2008 by the Accordini Family, driven by innovative ideas from Giacomo, Paolo, and Marco under the supervision of Daniele and Tiziano Accordini. Their pride lies in crafting two flagship wines: Amarone and Ripasso della Valpolicella, representing the essence of their winemaking tradition. The winery offers a splendid panoramic view, with the Lessini Mountains as an extraordinary backdrop and a south-facing terrace overlooking Verona, blending art, fine wines, and terroir.
Ripasso della Valpolicella
Did you know that Valpolicella Ripasso is a red wine created through a unique process involving fermenting Valpolicella red wine a second time over the sweet grape skins of Amarone and Recioto? This enriches the wine’s body, color, bouquet, and alcohol content, resulting in a fuller, deeper product. The process of “Ripasso” (“re-pass” or “go over again”) proved so successful that it obtained its own DOC designation in 2007. Ripasso wines typically exhibit an intense ruby red color and are known for their complex and aromatic bouquet. On the nose, can often detect notes of spices, dried fruits, cherries and hints of vanilla. The palate is characterised by a warm, full-bodied experience with a smooth texture and a pleasant balance between fruitiness and a touch of bitterness.
Due to its robust and versatile nature, Ripasso pairs exceptionally well with a wide range of foods. It complements various meat dishes, including roasts, grilled meats, and stews. Additionally, it harmonises with aged cheeses and stands up to hearty pasta dishes.
