Amarone Classico is bright red in color. The pure aromas of red cherries and berries are lifted by a floral touch. Sweet on arrival with a nice sweet and soft mouthfeel, then slightly bitter with remarkable tannins to the vibrant red berry aromas. Ends classically dry and with a hint of alcohol-derived warmth. This focused, energizing wine is delicious now, but will only get better with aging.
Amarone Classico is made from grapes harvested in the Brigaldara vineyards, located in the heart of the so-called Valpolicella Classica, at the entrance to the Marano Valley. The grapes used for the production of Amarone have been best exposed to the sun and the skins the thinest. The careful selection of the grapes in the vineyard and the strict management of the drying process are of extraordinary importance for this wine. The grapes are left to dry for about 120 days and are then vinified. Winemaking promotes the transfer of all noble components from the skin to the wine. Amarone Classico follows the traditional production method and uses large wooden barrels that are able to evolve the wine in the approx. 3 years of aging.
Aging: 1 year in French barrique and 2 years in 25hl Slavonian oak barrels.
