Winemaking Notes
Aristocratic Amarone is one of the jewels of the Italian winemaking. Selected hand-harvested and withered grapes lose more than 30-32% of their weight, increasing concentration inside berries.

Sensory Details
Bright deep red with orange tinges. Cherry scents - it's an Amarone after all - merged with smoky and pleasant herbal notes. This is a young Amarone with a gripping palate and lovely acidity melting in a round fruit finish. The finish is long and warm.

Serving Suggestions
Amarone is a wonderful accompaniment to braised meats and rich risottos. Broadly speaking, be sure that the dish is of equal weight or it might be overwhelmed.
Serving Temperature: 16 - 18 degrees C
