Description Technical Specs (May be in Italian If There Is Not an English Version Available)
Amarones are made when the grapes are picked mid September in whole clusters before Botrytis sets in. 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 Amarone opens with layered tones of cherry and spices like cinnamon and dark vanilla that come with barrel-aging, there is also a focused, pristine quality here that really pulls it all together. Best paired with game and aged cheeses.
Amarone is a concentrated red wine, we recommend opening the bottle 30 minutes before drinking.
