Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG - Organic Wine
VINEYARD and CELLAR
During the vintage we choose the ripest grapes and the ones good for drying After 5-6 months they rest in small woodencrate, grapes are crushed. WINEMAKING 30-35 days maceration on the skins
ermentation takes place in steel tanks at controlled temperatures for a period which takes from 25 and 35 days. Then the wine is put in wooden barrels where it ages for a long period, from 3 to 4 years. During this period, different tasting of each barrique take place, in order to understand the wine life and only after careful consideration, it is decided the blend which will determine the final wine.
At first sight right ruby red color with purple reflections, that becomes garnet with aging. A remarkable combination of perfume and taste. The high alcohol content is accompanied by particularly marked bouquet of plums, blackberries and cherry syrup, with spicy nuances, reflecting the concentrated sugars resulting from the process of drying the grapes. The effect on the palate of the high alcohol level is mitigated by the strongly fruity taste, dry but very mellow, with clearly defined acidity and well-balanced tannins.
Good with red meats, games, aged cheese.
