“A really fresh and well-balanced Amarone here, with tapenade, ripe but fresh blackberries, chili chocolate and some red berries, too. This is tight and juicy, with a medium-to full-bodied palate and a long, fruity finish. A modern, fresh expression of Amarone that shows immense drinkability, but still pretty serious. Not super-concentrated, but shows restraint and balance. Drink or hold.”

Amarone is the result of the ancient method of drying the grapes known since Roman times. At the end of September/beginning of October, the best bunches selected in the hills are placed on traditional bamboo racks, in drying lofts where the natural drying process is controlled by the NASA system. By the end of January, the grapes have lost 35% of their weight, acquiring a higher sugar concentration. The Corvina grape is naturally attacked by 'botrytis', a noble rot. This is followed by gentle crushing, partial destemming, fermentation for 45 days with selected, highly alcohol-resistant yeast inoculum and malolactic fermentation

70% Corvina, 5% Molinara, 25% Rondinella

Very dark ruby red. On the nose baked fruit, plums and cherries. Fruity tastes, with hints of coffee and cocoa. Very well balanced. Excellent as an after-dinner wine, or to go with red meat, game, quails and richly-flavoured dishes. Very good with well-aged cheeses, such as parmesan, pecorino and gorgonzola. 

Superb! Sought After
