(2007 Vintage) Made only in exceptional years, Amarone is lushly flavored, intensely concentrated and silky-textured. It is deep garnet, velvety-red in color with aromas of wild-cherry jam, spice and hints of cedar. It delivers rich, dry, black-cherry flavors and a finish that is long, round, and persistent with cacao and spice. Enjoy Bolla Amarone with red meats, roasts and grilled dishes, game, braised meats, and all well aged cheeses.
Amarone' are picked and laid out to dry on straw mats resulting in a raisoning of the grapes. After fermentation the wine is cellar'd for (2) yrs in oak and then bottled for another (2) yrs before being released.
another great wine made from corvina grape. big wine with great legs. almost syrupy but nice and dry. great with grilled red meat dish.
