This Amarone Riserva, the highlight of the Corte Rugolin range, is obtained from a selection of the best grapes in a small vineyard with excellent solar exposure. The grapes are processed using the 'appassimento' (drying Grapes) method for approximately three months, producing a garnet-red wine with an intense bouquet of cooked fruit, dried plums, cherries macerated in alcohol, tobacco, and various spices, ginger. Uncork a few hours before drinking and serve at 18-20°C
