The Grape
Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella.

The Wine
Amarone is produced from grapes traditionally dried on straw mats for about four months away from the wind and rain. Meanwhile, the water evaporates in the berry, and the natural substances of grapes remain at a high concentration. On the nose this wine releases intense and complex notes typical of Amarone. Scents of blackberries, blue berries, cherries, cinnamon, liquorice, coffee, chocolate, tobacco, dried prunes amongst others.We find the same sensations on the palate, warm, velvety, supple, with fine and pleasant tannins and an unending lasting flavour. Differntly than other Amarones, this one had been aged in different types of wood : oak, mulberry, chestnut and cherry, for at least 12 months, followed by 6 months fining in bottle.

The Pairing
Venison with wild mushrooms, duck breast with prunes, quail stuffed with foie gras, oriental dishes, rich cheeses.
