The long history of the Montresor family boasts illustrious ancestors, like the Count Claude de Montresor, the prime counsellor of Duke D'Orleans in France in 1600 (his writings, "Memoirs", dating back to 1663, are considered of great interest).

Traditional vinification was used when creating this Amarone. The harvest was late and the grapes were left to dry until February, when they were then crushed. The must fermented in stainless steel for 4 months and the wine was aged in Slavonian oak casks and French small barrels for 3 years. Once bottled, it rested for 6 months prior to release.

Black cherry liqueur and dark spice on the nose and palate of this attractive Italian Amarone. Made using the traditional method of appassimento: dry the grapes before fermentation to concentrate their flavours and the body of the wine. Pair with roast beef.See detailed press review

This is a lighter style of Amarone with a smoky floral red cherry nose with oak spice and herbal tones. It is mid-weight and well balanced and very rich with the cherry fruit persisting well on the finish. Very good length. Try with meaty pasta sauces or grilled sausages. Last tasted August 2015 during WWAC15.See detailed press review
