Il Sestante
Ripasso Valpolicella Superiore


Very strict grape selection and careful vinification using the traditional method of re-fermenting on the pomace from the Amarone create this complex and mellow wine.

We were so proud of our first “Ripasso” made with a selection of our best grapes, that we became the first family to flaunt the name on a label.

Tasting Note

A deep ruby red in color, on the nose it displays intense notes of ripe red fruits that broaden out into elegant floral and spicy hints. On the palate it is mellow, structured and with excellent balance, with a coherent aftertaste reminiscent of cheery preserve.

Serving Suggestions

Excellent with white and red meat dishes, or mature cheeses. With its well-balanced, rounded style, it can also accompany more delicate game dishes.


From the Tommasi family’s own vineyards in the hilly zone of Valpolicella.


Corvina Veronese, Rondinella Molinara.

Vinification and Maturation

Fermentation in stainless steel vats for around 12 days. Re-fermentation on the grape pomace from the Amarone for about 8 days, with pumping over daily. Maturation for 12 months in 65 hl Slavonian oak casks.

The selected grapes are placed onto traditional Arele and then left to rest for minimum 110 days in a large dedicated open room, where a ventilation system mantains an elevated and constant air flow. During this period the grapes are constantly checked since we want to keep them perfectly healthy, without any mildew.
