Amarone della Valpolicella Classico DOCG Riserva
Tasting Notes: The varietals for this wine undergo more than 120 days of appassimento and mature for 38-40 months in special new wood casks. Deep ruby red in color. Intense and elegant aromas of ripe berries and berry preserves with hints of chocolate and cinnamon. Firm and structured on the palate. Velvety tannins and refreshing acidity. The wine is long on the finish with flavors of maraschino cherry and cinnamon.
Food Pairings: Majestic, complex and elegant wine, with great ageing potential. Good with red meat, game and mature cheeses. Excellent finale to a meal.
