Nuances of semi-dried grapes exhibit the impact of it’s older brother Recioto. Pungent balsam melds with dark cherry, dried plum, and wild red berry fruit, spice essences such as black pepper, mint, and bitter almond.

10+ yrs

Food Matching

Best with roasts and boiled meats, aged cheeses such as Parmigiano Reggiano or Grana Padano, rabbit, poultry, and game. Enjoyed on its own or at meal’s end, it is superb. Can be enjoyed even after being open for several days

Vinification

Organic fertilisation and hand-pruning; shoot-thinning, leaf-pulling, cluster-thinning. Harvest is in the 2nd and 3rd decade of September. Minimum 3 month natural semi-drying of the grapes, with no use of dehumidifiers. Aft er pressing in January, the grapes are held in steel tanks and in concrete vats, without added yeasts or other bio-technical agents, until the fermentation begins, with very few pump-overs or punch-downs performed

Aging

Aft er maceration on the pomace for over 2 months, the wine matures in large Slavonian oak ovals for a minimum of 5 years. From this moment on, regular topping-up is the only operation performed: time very gradually shapes the wine’s characteristics. It receives one years’ bottle-ageing. Amarone is produced only in the finest growing years
