Beskrivelse

“My project was born in 2015 together with my great friend Franco Allegrini, owner of the Allegrini winery, a winery known all over the world for it’s extraordinary wines. We produce about 35.000 bottles a year and harvest our grapes manually, only selecting the best bunches. All our vineyards are located in the recognized Classico area of Valpolicella. The history of the winery dates to 1600 where wine has been produced since the beginning.” Vanni Pasquali, ejeren af Vantorosso.

Natural withering in drying rooms (fruttaio). Pressing and rasping happens during January's first half. Fermentation is done in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature for approximately 25 days. Ageing is done in brand new barriques for about 18 months and in the bottles for about 14 months.

The wine is of rich and vivid ruby red, with some garnet reflex. The nose is stern in the beginning and slowly turns in the glass to sweet and soft scents of cherry jam, as well as slightly withered red and purple flowers, followed by notes of dark tobacco and black pepper with a slight tone of balsamic and resin. In the mouth the wine expresses a pleasant play between the enfolding warmth of alcohol, the fresh and juicy feel of fruits and the astringency of tannins that leads the sip into a clean and slightly bittering. Amarone has a prominent body and strong personality that works well with the sharp flavours of game meat and can match succulent and very complex meals suche as stews and braised meats and even a vaccinara tail. If you want to treat yourself, taste it at the end of a meal with bits of dark chocolate.
