An Italian Valpolicella Ripasso, or 'Baby Amarone', wine using organically farmed grapes from vineyards in the Mezzane di Sotto hills, a little green paradise with cosy and well-worked slopes. Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella grapes go through double fermentation and maceration on the skins of San Cassiano's Amarone to assimilate colour and concentration. 

The result is a bold yet fresh and versatile Ripasso wine. Aromas of ripe red fruits and hints of mocha. The palate has full-bodied structure, lively acidity, notes of ripe red fruits and velvety texture. Try with simple pastas dishes, mushroom risotto, roasted vegetables or even antipasti. 

The winery takes their name from the little village San Cassiano, in the core of Mezzane Valley, where olive trees are caressed by the sun. The story began in 1964 by tenant farmer Albino Sella and it has now expanded to reach three thousand olive trees and 4 hectares of vineyard with Albino's grandson Mirko Sella, who founded Azienda Agricola San Cassiano in 2004. They try to respect the environment as much as possible when creating their wine and olive oil.
