Region Valpantena, Veneto
Pasqua Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG 2013
Deep red in colour, with a broad nose, fresh and decisive aroma of red fruits like currant and cherry, spicy tones reminiscent of cocoa and tobacco and sweet notes of vanilla. Mouthfeel is velvety and enveloping, with silky tannins and an aftertaste of marasca cherry. Long and persistent finish.
The grapes are harvested by hand in mid-September and laid down to dry in the drying loft for about 3 months where the bunches lose about 25-30% of their weight and substances in the grapes become concentrated.
Corvina 65%, Rondinella 25%, Corvinone 5%, Negrara 5%
