Winery notes:

“This red wine embraces tradition, territory and the know-how of country ways. Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Oseleta are left to air dry at least until December and are checked daily to ensure perfectly healthy grapes. Lengthy refining and ageing finally yields a red wine that has become emblematic of Italian oenology, alongside Barolo and Brunello di Montalcino. It has imposing structure and depth, as much in its aromas of mature fruit and spices, as on the palate, where the alcohol is sustained by the right degree of acidity and refined tannins.”Traditionally enjoyed with game, roasted and grilled meats, casseroles and well matured cheeses. Excellent with hearty dishes. Amarone’s distinctive flavor compliments exotic sweet and sour cuisine and is therefore also perfect with Asian and middle-eastern dishes. Blend: Corvina Veronese 45%, Corvinone 45%,Rondinella 5%, Oseleta 5%.”

 

Critical Acclaim:

“94 points.

“Exotic spice, mature black-skinned fruit, espresso and French oak are just some of the aromas you’ll find on this delicious, full-bodied red. Boasting an enviable combination of concentrated flavors and elegance, it delivers flavors of ripe black cherry, prune steeped in spirits, vanilla bean and licorice framed by enveloping fine-grained tannins. Fresh acidity lifts the rich flavors while a coffee note lingers on the finish. Drink through 2026.” – Wine Enthusiast
