Tasting Notes: Aromas of jammy berries, coffee, and chocolate. Soft tannins and a pleasant flavor contribute to its smooth, balanced taste, while a good level of freshness keeps it lively on the palate.

Ageing/Vinification: The grapes are placed in wooden boxes in the vineyards themselves and must ensure optimal quality, ripeness and well-separated bunches. They are then kept until February in integral and healthy condition. Over these months, a physiological reduction of around 60/65% takes place involving important conversion and concentration. Native yeasts helps activate all fermentation stages in 40 hl vats. Low seasonal temperatures ensure that this stage lasts for more than a month, during which time continual rack and return and manual wine-crushing procedures ensure the best extraction of the goodness and elegance of the skins. On completion of fermentation and after pouring off, the new Amarone is left for no less than three years in oak barrels of various capacities and ages.

Vineyard: Grapes come from estate owned central vineyards – Roaro Vineyard 7 – Valletta Vineyard 5 and Bosco Vineyard 6 – for an overall area of 3.70 hectares. All the vines are grown using the simple guyot system with a density of 6400 plants/hectare. All our grapes have organic certification and in recent years the vineyards have been managed on the basis of bio-dynamic agriculture principles.

Product Area: Organic + bio-dynamic agriculture principles.
