Corvina 70% – Rondinella 20% – Croatina 10%. Vineyards located in the family-owned, gently sloping vineyard called “Ambrosan”, in San Pietro in Cariano, in southwest position.
This is the Nicolis standard-bearer. It is a princely wine, full bodied, elegant and vigorous. Its color is an intense garnet red. On the palate, it is dry and generous, powerful and yet delicate. Its complex fragrances suggest blossoms and well-ripened fruit, with insistent nuances of autumn leaves and leather. This wine has a “three-dimensional” tasting progression, where the
management of the alcohol content in harmony with the important structure and aromatic richness agree in a sense of elegant power.
Like the Amarone® Classico, the “cru” “Ambrosan” goes well with game, spicy cheese and roast meat. It is an extraordinary “meditation wine”. The wine should be opened at least one hour before serving. It should be served in large balloon glasses.
