Winemaker Notes

Our Amarone offers up aromas of freshly crushed currant with a slight raisin edge. Full bodied and silky textured with loads of concentrated black fruit and spice are discovered on its long, super clean and delicious finish.

Ripe and dense with cassis; blackberry and sweet spice; smooth, lush and concentrated with notes of licorice and chocolate; vibrant, rich and complex; a very impressive Amarone at an amazing price.

Riondo, Veneto, Italy
Image of winery
In the heart of the Soave production zone, where grapes are history and tradition, Cantine Riondo offers a range of still and naturally fermented sparkling wines that express all the virtues of the territory under several different brands on both the domestic and export markets. For Riondo wine is a real passion, where years of patience, experience and dedication are combined to give one result: the gift of moments of sheer pleasure.

Established in 2008, Collis-Riondo is one of the largest and most important wine producers in Veneto and in Italy, with over 14,800 acres of vineyards that are managed daily by more than 2,400 associated farmers. Riondo, named after the Mount Riondo near to the winery, is the Collis-Riondo brand dedicated to the Carmat method DOC sparkling wines.

A large and diverse wine region in northeastern Italy, the Veneto is home to a vast array of different styles of wine.

The sub-region of Valpolicella (meaning “valley of cellars” in Italian) is a series of north to south valleys and is the source of Veneto’s best red wine with the same name. Valpolicella—the wine—is juicy, spicy, tart and packed full of red cherry flavors. Corvina makes up the backbone of the blend with Rondinella, Molinara, Croatina and others playing supporting roles. Recioto and Amarone follow the same blending patterns but are made from grapes left to dry for a few months before pressing, resulting in wines that are intense, full-bodied, heady and often, quite cerebral.

Soave, based on the indigenous Garganega grape, is the famous white here—made ultra popular in the 1970s at a time when quantity was more important than quality. Today one can find great values on whites from Soave, making it a perfect choice as an everyday sipper! But the more recent local, increased focus on low yields and high quality winemaking in the original Soave zone, now called Soave Classico, gives the real gems of the area. A fine Soave Classico will exhibit a round palate full of flavors such as ripe pear, apricot, or yellow peach, have smoky and exotic aromas and a sapid, fresh, mineral-driven finish.

Much of Italy’s Pinot Grigio hails from the Veneto, where the crisp and refreshing style is easy to maintain; the ultra-popular sparkling wine, Prosecco, comes from here as well.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
