Winemaker's Notes:

Blend: 60% Corvina, 25% Rondinella, 5% Molinara, 10% other

This great wine obtained from the best Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara grapes faithfully reflects the ancient traditions. After the first fermentation in autumn, a second fermenting (ripasso) in the spring is made on the Amarone's grape skins. This process extracts the rich color and body, enhances the aroma, taste and longevity, and consequently its quality.

A dark ruby-red color, with the fragrance of pepper, fruit marmalade (cherries, prunes) and spices, licorice and ginger. Excellent with roasted meats and cheeses.
