Ca Botta is re-writing the rules in Valpolicella, and the results are so good we imported every drop we could, exclusively for Vivino users! A Vivino style awards winner, Ca Botta’s Ripasso is concentrated, complex, and hypnotic with its mix of intense fruit flavors and peppery spice. Blindfolded, we’d happily buy this for 3x the price!

About the wine

The innovative Tenute Ca Botta isn’t afraid to buck the trend in Valpolicella and make traditional Ripasso wines better than ever by blending classical techniques with modern technology.

Their combination of patented fermentation technology and the ancient practice of partially drying grapes to intensify their flavors, have led to rave reviews from Italian critics like Luca Maroni, and a slew of awards in their short history.  Farmed at a higher elevation than its neighbors, the Ca Botta vineyards have exceptional drainage which allows their native Italian grape varieties to flourish and produce high caliber fruit year-in and year-out. Armed with unrivaled intensity of flavor, this Valpolicella Ripasso breaks the rules in all the right ways.

"One of the best wines I have tasted." - Marin P.

"For the money I'd say this wine is solid, definitely one of the better variants I've tried. A proper baby Amarone!" - Ben B.

"Great balanced, smooth and elegant. Luxury wine with big potential, needs decanting." - Yury K.

96 pts, Alex Casella, WSET Advanced "

Rich purple color with tinted ruby hues. This is a bolstering fusion of black cherry, robust dark fruits and silky red fruits on the nose and palate. An abundance of character from the fruit leads into finishing flavors of spices like cardamom, cinnamon, rich vanilla bean and dried herbs. I was thoroughly impressed with the structure, elegance and weight of this wine. For Valpo, at this price and level you should not hesitate to buy a sixer. This is starting to blossom now and will hold for the next 10 years in the cellar. In conclusion, the wine was light on its feet with superb balance and finesse and could pair with an array of hardy foods from Arrabiata Pasta with Veal to Lamb Osso Bucco to Risotto Di Amarone.""

Thank you for trusting Vivino for your wine orders! In order to ensure that your wine is protected from the elements during transport, Vivino has developed a comprehensive program for temperature controlled shipping:

  • All shipments to Non-West Coast states (CA, OR, WA, ID, MT, WY, NV, AZ, CO, NM) will be sent via temperature controlled truck to the closest regional hub. These facilities, referred to as "gateways", are temperature controlled and located strategically throughout the country.
  • Once a shipment arrives at the gateway*, it will be transferred to UPS or Fedex for the final part of its journey

* Note that ice packs (if ordered) will be added to your package at this time.


All orders placed before 1pm EST on Wednesday will be shipped out on Friday of the same week. All orders placed after this time will be stored in a temperature controlled warehouse and shipped out the following Friday.

Delivery times, therefore, may take 8-14 days from order date, accounting for fulfillment, 4-5 days shipment to the regional hub, and 1-2 days for local delivery.

If you would like a more expeditious delivery option, please select 2-Day or Overnight Shipping.


Tracking information will not be available for your shipment until it reaches the regional hub, due to the fact that the shipment is sent via common (temperature controlled) carrier and there is no individual tracking number for the package.

You will however receive a confirmation email indicating that your shipment has left the West Coast warehouse and is en route to your closest regional hub. Your order will say "UPS Label Created", but this label will not be scanned until it reaches the regional hub.

Once the shipment reaches the regional hub, you will be able to track your package (likely 4-5 days after shipping date). At this point, the package is en route to your home/office.


  • Your wine can be protected from environmental damage for the entirety of its journey
