Product description

This Amarone is obtained from the best bunches harvested by hand and left to raisin in wooden crates for about 3 months. After raisining, the grapes increase in sugar extracts by 25-30%. the dried grapes are pressed and left to ferment for 25-30 days. Then, the product is pressed and racked in steel tanks where malolactic fermentation takes place. Afterwards the wine is placed in small oak barrels where it ages for 1820 months, before bottling. Ageing in bottle for 4 months. This is our Amarone par excellence: a wine of great class, appreciated by enthusiasts for its majestic style and complexity. A deep red in colour, it has an expansive bouquet, with fresh, positive scents of fruits, such as blackberries and cherries. On the palate it displays spicy tones that remind one of chocolate and freshly-roasted coffee, as well as sweetish vanilla-like notes from its long maturation in wood. It is warm and well– balanced, with gentle tannins and a long finish.
