Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This wine has aromas of ripe prunes, blackberries, cherry syrup and spices such as cinnamon and cloves; on the palate is opulent and full body but amazingly balanced; the massive structure of this wine gives it up to 15 years of aging potential.
Vineyard Notes
Amarone is one of the "Big Reds of Italy" and the flagship red of the Veneto region. In Valpolicella, just north of Verona, the tradition of partially drying the grapes dates back to early 500 AD. This Amarone comes from Fasoli Gino, founded in 1925. Today his sons and grandsons continue crafting unique wines from the certified organic grapes they grow.
Winemaker Notes
The grapes for this Amarone were left in small wooden crates for five to six months to partially dry. Fermentation was carried out in steel vats for 25 to 35 days. The wine was then transferred to oak barrels where it was left to mature for at least three years.
Food Pairing Notes
The qualities described above are appreciated best when served with red meats, game and mature cheeses. It may also be enjoyed at the end of a meal served with biscuits with almonds.
