  • Tasting notes

    Deep ruby red colour with a characteristic fruity, musky and spicy nose. Dry on the palate, slightly bitter with scents of violet, liquorice, blackberry and ripe cherries. Pair with red meat, game and seasoned cheeses. Serve at 18-20°C and open the bottle to let the wine breathe prior to drinking. The use of a decanter is recommended.

  • Viticultural notes

    The grapes for this vintage were grown in the Hills of Negrar (in the heart of Valpolicella), North-West of Verona. It is a single vineyard Capitel della Crosara.

  • Winemaking notes

    A traditional vinification process was used to create this Amarone. This vintage saw a late harvest where the grapes were left to dry out until February before they were crushed. The must fermented in stainless steel for 4 months and the wine was aged in French oak casks and small barrels for 3 years. After the wine was bottled it was allowed to rest for 6 months before it was released.
