Amarone Classico is bright red in color. The clean aromas of red cherries and berries are lifted by a floral touch. Sweet on entry with a nice sweet and soft mouthfeel, then slightly bitter with remarkable tannins to accompany the vibrant red berry aromas. Finishes classically dry and with a touch of alcohol-derived warmth. This focused, energetic wine is delicious now, but will only get better with aging.
The grapes used to produce Amarone have been best exposed to the sun and the skin thinnest. The careful selection of grapes in the vineyard and the strict management of the drying process are of extraordinary importance for this wine. The grapes are left to dry for about 120 days and then vinified. Amarone Classico follows the traditional production method and uses large wooden barrels that are able to evolve the wine over the approximately 3 years of aging.
