Wine Description

This wine is closely connected to the greatest wine of Valpolicella: Amarone. After pressing the dried grapes from which Amarone is made, the Valpolicella wine is passed over the still warm marc of Amarone. A second alcoholic fermentation begins which increases the alcoholic content and the wine becomes richer in colour, bouquet

Winemaker's Notes

Colour: deep ruby red. Bouquet: intense, elegant and persistent. Palate: harmonious and velvety, with a good structure.

    Strong, smooth, fullness without a bitter aftertaste! Think it will go great with chocolate

    Ripasso method - add back grape skins for aging.
