This Amarone with a distinctive intense red colour tending to garnet is elegant and has plenty of character. Its sensory characteristics evoke sensations of dried sour cherries, chocolate and ripe fruit. It’s a heavyweight red wine with great structure, plenty of complexity and excellent balance. The tannins are delicate. It’s the perfect match for richly flavoured foods such as grilled meats, aged cheeses and dark chocolate.
