  • Tasting notes

    Deep ruby red colour with pomegranate reflections, ethereal nose which reminds of peach blossoms, violet, raspberry and mint. On the palate it is intense, refined; it displays full body and smoothness, with clear notes of dried grapes.

    FOOD SUGGESTIONS Ideal with spicy dishes, game and seasoned cheeses. Excellent with parmesan cheese. Great wine, to serve at room temperature (20° C) uncorking the bottle possibly two hours before.

  • Viticultural notes

    The classic area of the Valpolicella(North-West of Verona) which includes the five traditional villages of Negrar, Marano, S.Pietro in Cariano and Fumane.

  • Winemaking notes

    Traditional vinification for the making of Amarone. Late harvest. The grapes are dried out until February, when they are crushed. The must ferments in stainless steel for 4 months. The wine ages in Slavonian oak casks and French small barrels for 3 years. Finally it is bottled and it rests for 6 months before release.
