Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG

The moment when you open the bottle and pour Amarone into the glass is magical. A spicy bouquet with characteristic red fruit flavors, especially blackberries and cherries, is released right away. Then on the palate, it is a sign of balance, warmth, and lingering softness.Our Amarone is for us the highest expression of the drying technique on dry red still wines. In addition to the classic aromas of red fruits, blackberries, and cherries, it has a very persistent spicy part (cocoa, leather, chocolate, tobacco, incense) and then a balsamic and mentholated part, characteristic of our valley and soils.The key to Amarone’s drinkability lies in its elegance and fineness, as well as its low residual sugar content. A wine that is vertical, smooth, and soft, but never heavy.
