Tasi is a distinguished producer in the Veneto region of Italy, celebrated for its artisanal approach to winemaking. The Ripasso Superiore, often referred to as the "baby Amarone," is crafted using a traditional method that involves fermenting Valpolicella wine on the lees of Amarone, imparting depth and complexity. Tasi's commitment to quality and tradition shines through in the 2019 vintage, showcasing their expertise and passion for winemaking.

The vineyards for this Ripasso are located in the hilly regions of Valpolicella, where the unique combination of limestone and volcanic soils, coupled with the temperate climate, provides the perfect environment for growing Corvina, Rondinella, and Molinara grapes. The Ripasso process enriches the wine, adding layers of flavor and a velvety texture. The 2019 vintage benefits from careful aging in oak barrels, enhancing its structure and balance.
