Notes from the Winemaker:

The high-quality approach to this wine begins in the vineyard as it is made from a strict selection of Corvina, Rondinella, Croatina, and Oseleta grapes grown in the Sant’ Ambrogio district. The grapes were harvested in September and October and dried for four months before fermentation. After being aged for 36 months in large barrels, the wine was refined for several months in bottle.

Tasting Notes:

Ruby red in color, this Amarone Riserva offers dense and smokey aromas of dark cherries, raisins, chocolate, and anise, framed by fruity tannins and a spicy finish. With the level of complexity and balance that this wine shows, it will evolve beautifully for 10+ years.

Food Pairing:

Pair this wine with Beef Wellington, demi-glaces, fegato alla veneziana, or grilled red meat.

Varietal composition: 80% Corvina, 10% Rondinella, 5% Croatinna, and 5% Oseleta
Aging: 48 months, French oak

Ratings & Reviews
94 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Dried thyme and rosemary are a fragrant entry point for this sleek red, cloaking muscular tannins in a well-spiced robe of currant pâte de fruit, tarry mineral and fruitcake flavors, with rich hints of melted licorice and mocha and a firm, mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2029. 1,400 cases made." - AN (Feb 29, 2016)

94 Points - James Suckling:
"This Amarone shows shaved-chocolate, dried-strawberry and burnt-orange undertones. Full-bodied, round and juicy. Soft tannins. Very intense and flavorful. A complex, layered riserva Amarone. Drink now." - (October 29th, 2015)

92 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Aromas of espresso, black pepper, oak, chocolate and blackberry jam waft out of the glass. The dense, concentrated palate delivers brandied black cherry, licorice, raisin and coffee alongside firm, gripping tannins that leave the palate dry on the finish. Give the tannins another two or three years to unwind and then enjoy." - Kerin O’Keefe (12/31/2015)
