With an intense ruby color, and persistent aroma, hints of cherry, spices and a pleasant fragrance of bitter almonds make it particularly enjoyable. This Amarone has a vigorous body that is at the same time soft, warm, full and smooth.

More information :

The grapes: Corvina (70%), Rondinelia (25%) and Molinara (5%) are harvested between the end of September and the beginning of October at their peak condition and perfect ripeness. They are immediately placed in wooden crates and set to dry in the cellar in special rooms called "fruit cellars" that are well ventilated and provided with spacious openings that ensure the airing of the environment.

The grapes are generally left in the fruit cellars until February of the year after the harvest, until they have lost about half their weight. This natural dehydration concentrates the aromas of the grapes and gives it a higher concentration of sugars and polyphenols as well. After drying, the grapes are gently pressed and begin their alcoholic fermentation that continues for about 20/25 days in contact with the skins at a temperature of 18'-20' C. At the end of this period, is racked off for malolactic fermentation. When these processes have been completed, the wine is aged for 2-3 years in large casks of Slavonian oak, at first, and then in smaller casks (barriques) of Allier oak. After it has been bottled, the wine is refined for another 6 months before consumption.

Food Pairing The red fruit intensity and softer tannins of modern Amarones mean they pair well with pork, veal, and poultry dishes. All Amarones work well with big flavoured cheeses.
