After pressing and destemming, fermentation is set off at controlled
temperature of 25°-26° C with remontages every 8 hours to
extract polyphenols and anthocyanins. Placed in steel tanks until
February, the wine is then left on the dried skins of the Amarone
where it ferments again, enhancing the structure and aromas of
the wine, according to traditional “Ripasso method”. After decanting,
the wine is transferred into barriques of various capacity
and toasting, where it stays for 8 months before assembling and
bottling. Ageing in bottle for 2-3 months.
Ruby-red, this wine offers intense aromas of wild cherries, redcurrant
and hints of toasting. A rich and full-bodied wine, with sweet
and round tannins on the palate.
Excellent with savory first course dishes or meat, such as roast
lamb, barbecued meats and seasoned cheese. Serve at 18-20°C.
