Amarone della Valpolicella DOC Classico
The vineyards are found in the municipality of Fumane (Verona), where cool mountain air currents, mitigated by the breezes off Lake Garda, create a unique viticulture terroir. This Amarone is a blend of Corvina (80%), Rondinella and Molinara grapes. The wine is aged in oak casks for 36 months and subsequently in the bottle, to achieve highly evolved notes, ranging from fruit to sweet spice, pepper and tobacco. The long, complex palate is soft and nicely balanced.
