Amarone Classico Riserva

The Amarone Classico Riserva is obtained by using the traditional appassimento method, a natural drying process of Corvina, Rondinella and Corvinone grapes which were harvested by hand with a thorough selection process, giving it a unique and immediately recognizable taste. After a long fermentation in stainless steel, Amarone is aged for 5 years in big oak barrels.

The wine has a ruby red color with garnet reflections. The impact of preserved cherry, spices, and dried rose petals lend complexity and elegance to the nose. To the palate, it has warmth and subtlety, well-structured and with a high alcohol content, balanced by velvety tannins and an elegant acidity and freshness.
