Amarone Classico 3CRU is made from hand-picked grapes from the three vineyards of Calcarole, Pojega & Rovereti. After the traditional grape drying period the wine undergoes a long fermentation followed by three years maturation in oak.
Aromatic with ripe dark berried fruit alongside sweet spice, a ripe, rich style. Powerful, rich and rounded with abundant, ripe, dark berried fruit supported by fine oak. This is a terrific example of Amarone, being well structured yet maintaining good freshness. To enjoy at it’s best we’d advise that you decant this at least an hour before serving.
47% Corvina, 21% Rondinella, 19% Corvinone, 10% Barbera 3% Sangiovese
