Amarone, the exclusive symbol of Valpolicella Classica, is a highly structured, complex, elegant and velvety wine. It has an intense ruby red colour and a warm, spicy bouquet reminiscent of raisined fruit. Ageing potential: 18-20 years. Ideal with game, char-grilled and braised meats and fully matured cheeses. Due to the lingering aroma of raisined grapes, it can be paired with the fascinating delights of Asian an Middle- Eastern cuisine and their unmistakable spicy and sweet-sour flavour combination.

Wine SpectatorHarmonious, with depth to the layers of ferrous mineral, pure black cherry, anise, aromatic tea leaf and herb notes, showing a sense of overall finesse to the frame of fine-grained tannins and lightly juicy acidity. Drink now through 2028.

Wine EnthusiastThis classic Amarone has a layered bouquet, with notes of prune, plum, nutmeg and clove, along with bell pepper notes. The palate delivers ripe blackberry and plum flavors, with hints of black pepper and chocolate. While this is very structured, restraint and freshness add elegance.
