Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG Montigoli, 2017

Italy

Producer

Avenue Srl

Grape Variety

Corvina

A hugely characterful Amarone with savoury dark chocolate, smoke, balsamic, oak and cherry aromas all emerging in the glass. It is supple on the palate with nice vanilla flavours and juicy red fruits leading to a mellow woody finish with bitter cherries. The vineyard is located in the heart of the Valpolicella Classica zone on terraced slopes in the hills close to Negrar. Grapes were harvested by hand in the first ten days of October and left to dry for 120 days. Fermentation and an extended maceration of 30 days on skins were followed by aging in large oak casks for 18 months. Due to the concentration of the dried grapes, leftover Amarone skins still contain unfermented sugar and alcohol. These skins can be used to produce Ripasso wines.
