Winemaker's Notes:

Wine-making and refi ning The grapes are handpicked and collected in small crates from the last ten days of September to the fi rst ten of October in two or three passages depending on the climatic conditions of the season. They are then left to dry for three months in naturally ventilated sheds. The wine rests three months until January when the fermentation takes place in new 500-litre open French oak barrels for 30 days and then it is refi ned 3 years in French oak barrels with a further six months aging in bottles in the cellars before this powerful Amarone is ready to be served. The wine A deep ruby red wine with garnet refl ections, its bouquet is one of wild berries accompanied by liquorices, black pepper and spices and tobacco. It has sweet tannins, unique aromas and good balance . This luscious wine is concentrated, structured and dry to the palate with a harmonicity and a freshness which is sustained by a long lasting quality. Food combining To be served at 16-18 °C. This fi rm and vigorous wine was designed to accompany a whole meal, from grilled red meat, roast beef, braised and stewed meat, game dishes to mature cheese like parmesan cheese and nuts too. Its “drinkability” allows us to use it alone in relaxing after dinners with friends full of unforgettable atmosphere.

Probably one of the best wines I have recently tried! I had it in Rome last week with some typical roman food such as maccheroni all' amatriciana, roman style tripes and tagliata con rughetta...phenomenal, round, full-bodied, aromas of ripe prune, chocolate...awesome!
