Tasting Notes:

On the nose, the typical notes of raisined fruit and cherry flavors are dominant. Mild hints of vanilla and spice are present as well. Elegant and warm with a velvety mouthfeel. Incredibly long, persistent finish that lingers on the palate. Amarone ages gracefully for upwards of 10 years if stored properly.


20% small French oak barrels & 80% large Slavonian oak barrels for 12 months. Following blending, the wine ages an additional 16-18 months in large Slavonian oak barrels, then 6-8 months in bottle.


After undergoing appassimento (drying) for 3-4 months, the grapes lose about 30-40% of their original weight. In January, the bunches are pressed, and the must undergoes a slow fermentation with the skins, seeds, and stalks in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature for 20-30 days. Yeasts are carefully selected to resist the high alcohol content and the cold winter temperatures. The wine is racked off the lees before undergoing malolactic.
