Description

Alpha Zeta was created in 1999 by UK wine importer, David Gleave MW, and New Zealand winemaker, Matt Thomson with this belief in mind. They realised that the key is to marry local grape growers with impeccable winemaking. All Alpha Zeta wines are made from indigenous grape varieties grown in the hills north-east of Verona.  The flavours of the grape shine through in the glass offering great value, quality and balance.

Ruby red in colour, this Ripasso opens with a concentrated perfume of red and dried cherries. Full-bodied on the palate, it shows lovely balance between opulent cherry-pie character and supple structure. The finish is long with a mouthwatering bitter-cherry twist.
