The name “Campolieti” means “happy fields”, referring both to the vineyards from which this excellent wine is produced and to the joyous reaction of many loyal Luigi Righetti customers upon their first taste of this ripasso Valpolicella. The soils are lean and dry, giving the wine an intense cherry bouquet with a distinct scent of bitter almonds.

Luigi Righetti Campolieti Valpolicella Classico Ripasso is made from a blend of Corvina, Molinara and Rondinella grapes, carefully picked in October before undergoing the most modern winemaking processes. The newly made Valpolicella is passed over ("ripasso") and re-fermented on the pomace and lees of the dried grapes from the estate's Amarone. The remaining sugars, flavours and tannins provide extra richness and body to what traditionally is a lighter style of red wine. It is then aged in oak barrels for twelve months, giving a velvety and harmonious wine.
