Description
 

This elegant and enjoyable Amarone is a blend of 40% Corvina, 25% Corvinone, 30% Rondinella, and the remainder of Oseleta, Molinara, and Croatina, grown on tuffaceous and calcareous soil on Cru Monte La Parte. A rigorous selection identifies the best bunches, which are stored in the "fruttaio" (dryining room). The drying process, all natural without the use of air conditioning system, lasts longer than 3 months with a weight loss of up to 35%. After a cold maceration of 15 days, the slow fermentation lasting at least a month takes place in stainless steel tanks with controlled temperatures under 20°C. The soft remontage and delestage tecnique allows the maximum extraction of polyphenolic compounds. Afterwards, the wine is refined in French oak barrels for at least 5 years, and transferred to stainless steel tanks for an extra few month. It spends and extra year in bottle before being released.The color is a ruby red with shades of orange. while the nose reveals notes of ripe fruit such as black cherry, raspberry, dried fig, chocolate, and plum, with hints of mint and eucalyptus. Full-bodied and well-structured, the palate has fruity notes of red berries combined with licorice and tobacco. These concentrated flavors and ripe are balanced with medium and elegant tannins. Dense and complex, it has an ever-persistent after taste. Rich and intense, this philosophical wine is perfect to be savored with red meat, game, glazed duck, salami, or matured or semi-matured cheeses.
