Degustation notes

Light garnet red, a complex bouquet of plum, blackberry jam, elderberry syrup, cinnamon, clove and caramel on the nose, huge concentration in the mouth, a powerful wine with silky tannins, very aromatic with a finish that fans out like a peacock's tail. Monumental.

Special notes

Amarone is an red Italian DOC wine made from dried Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara grapes. This is the Recioto variant that is vinified dry and grown in the Valpolicella Classico appellation area. Legend has it that Amarone was born in 1930 as a result of the carelessness of a chai employee, that forgot about a barrel of Recioto. Amarone is obtained from a concentrate - of natural production - the reason for its concentrated aroma and taste. In the Valpolicella appellation area, in Veneto, the best grapes, when they arenot rotting, are dried under the roof on trellises for two to four months (this process is called "appassimento"" in Italian or passerillage), constantly turned, so they lose between a third and a half of their weight, they are pressed when almost as dry as raisins. The grapes' loss of water content densifies the extracts forming intense combinations. Ideally, the result is creamy but not toosweet, wines with a variety of flower aromas, herbs, blackberries, cherries, or dried plums. Their delicately fruity flavour is balanced by strong, vigorous tannins, to the point that a typical Amarone combines both sweetness and bitterness.
