Wine facts

Label Notes:

Martino and Maurizio have the pleasure to present this Amarone. The grapes are still hand-picked up and placed in wooden cases. Then are allowed to dry in special chambers to concentrate the remaining sugars and flavors. Following drying, end of January, beginning of February, the grapes are crushed and go through a dry low temperature fermentation process. Then the wine is aged initially in stainless steel tanks and successively in small barrels. This Amarone has an intense colour and an important bouquet. It pairs excellently with red meat and game.

Aging:

Our Amarone ages for 1 year and a half in Slovenian barrels of 30hl, big ones, where the Amarone was – and still is in some traditional wineries as ours - traditionally aged since its origin in Verona. After that, it is transferred back to stainless steel tanks for 2 and a half months and then it continues ageing in the bottle for 1 year. This confers to the wine the fruitiness and dried fruits aromas, so no more wood influence.
