Production information

Producer: Caruso & Minini

Caruso & Minini are a part of new revival in Sicilian wine. Smaller wineries have sprung up in the past decade with private investment and a strong interest in the potential of the native grapes from Sicily. One example is Caruso & Minini. When Mario Manini met Stefano Caruso it sparked a long-held dream to produce a wine in the historical winemaking region of Marsala in Western Sicily.

Production note

The grapes are fermented normally and then placed for a few weeks on Amarone skins to macerate. This adds body, texture and flavour to the final wine. Ripensato is denser and richer than a normal Valpolicella.
