Varietal: 45% Corvina Veronese, 45% Corvinone, 5% Rondinella, 5% Oseleta. The best grapes are harvested from the upper hillsides and are left to dry in the drying facility for about 4 months. After a soft pressing, the wine ferments in steel tanks and ages in new barriques for 18 months, in large barrels for 7 months and in the bottle for about 14 months.
Taste: Intense ruby red skewing to garnet in the glass. This Amarone reveals an extraordinary complexity on the nose with notes of cherries and blackberry jam, followed by hints of dried violets, dark chocolate, coffee and tobacco. The palate is surprised with its balance, freshness and softness that is enhanced by silky-smooth tannins.
