Deep and bright garnet red in colour. Complex and sumptuous on the nose: lovely notes of marasca cherry and jam are followed by spices and a delicate leather finish. A full, supple, powerful yet delicate wine, with a long, balanced finish.

Why we like it
Harvest takes places in the second ten days of September. Our grapes dry in drying rooms for approximately 100 days, with a weight loss of 40%. Destemming and gentle pressing follow. Fermentation lasts 25 days in stainless steel tanks; it occurs at controlled temperature of 15° - 20° C with daily pumping over. Amarone agesfor 24 months in French oak barriques and tonneaux. A further 6-month bottle ageing occurs.
Excellent with stewed and barbecued game, braised meat, mature cheese, and sweet and sour cuisine.
