Amarone della Valpolicella Classico D.O.C.

Grape Mix:
Corvina, Corvinone, 65% Rondinella, 30% Molinara other grapes variety 5%

The partially-dried grapes were crushed towards the middle of January and the fermentation was initiated immediately using selected yeasts (uvarum). Fermentation proceeded slowly at low temperature and the wine was racked after 60 days on the skins with the residual sugar level still at 40 g/l. After ten days it was racked again, off the gross deposit. 25% of the production was put in new Slavonian oak barrels of 12 and 25 hl capacity; another 25% was put in American oak barriques and French oak tonneaux, the remainder going into second-passage tonneaux.

Oeno-gastronomic characteristics
The wine, of garnet-russet hue, is slightly sweet, warm, robust, full, harmonious, velvety with a most satisfying touch of bitterness. It is the ideal wine with game and has no rivals as an accompaniment to hard cheeses. But its most characteristic role is as an after-dinner wine, for sipping in moments of intimacy, or for fuelling lively post-prandial conversation. It should be opened at least two hours before consumption and consumed at ambient temperature. It is the classic wine of friendship.
