Porta Nova Ripasso
The Porta Nova project was started by leading New Zealand winemaker Matt Thompson. Working with grape growers fom the hills around Verona he sources excellent quality, ripe fruit from select vineyard parcels. The wine is made by the 'ripasso' method whereby the wine is refermented on the skins of Amarone grapes, giving more body and depth, before one year aging in French oak barrels. This is a bold Ripasso with loads of sweet ripe dark berry fruit, well-integrated oak spice and that distinct 'sour cherry' Ripasso freshness.
