Description Technical Specs (May be in Italian If There Is Not an English Version Available)

The 2015 Amarone is made with 40% Corvina, 20% Corvinone, 20% Rondinella, 20% Native Varietals.

The clusters are then placed on drying mats, and their sugar content is carefully monitored while the grapes dry out. This Amarone, Crosara del le Strie, is made in January when the grapes have lost between 35-40% of their original weight. It is then aged for 18 months in barrique and 6 months in the bottle grande before it is released.
The term amaro means bitter, but you will see, this full-bodied, velvety, berry-full wine is anything but! Richly textured and deeply intense.
This special 2015 Amarone has a dark ruby red with inky tones color. An intense bouquet of cherries, raisins, and almonds. Rich with notes of an Amarone character. Hints of raspberries and raisins, with an almond undertone.

Best paired with all meat-based dishes, roast game & mature cheeses. Amarone is a concentrated red wine, we recommend opening the bottle 30 minutes before drinking.

5 of 5 Best Amarone I have had in a while November 9, 2021
Reviewer: Kevin H from Dallas , TX United States  
Simply nothing to fault. Robust dark fruit, with serious cherry and blackcurrant notes. Extremely smooth and velvety on the tongue, hints of tobacco and leather linger on the palette. Absolute perfection in a glass!
