Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG Classico
Region

Veneto

Variety

Corvina 65% – Rondinella 20% – Molinara 5% Croatina 10%. Vineyards located on family property in the hills of the Valpolicella Classica area.

Tasting notes

Deep dark ruby red which gradually turns into garnet. Powerful and aristocratic nose made of ripe fruit, jam, sensations of cocoa, walnut, tobacco and leather. Elegant and powerful wine with a distinct spicy bouquet, with utterly distinctive
flavors; it shows an impressive balance between volume and smoothness, warmth and crispness, austerity and richness. Endless long lasting.

Food Pairing

It goes well with game, roast meat, and hearty, flavourful aged cheese. Extraordinary “meditation wine”. The bottle should be opened at least one hour before serving. It should be served in large balloon glasses that favor good oxygenation.
