Amarone Classico 2011

Corvina Veronese, Croatina, Rondinella, Nebbiolo 55%, Sangiovese 30%, Cabernet Sauvignon 15%

The Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Riserva by Giuseppe Quintarelli is born in vineyards located in the municipality of Negrar, in the magical terroir of Valpolicella.

It is produced with a skilful blend of Corvina, Croatina, Rondinella, Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, carefully harvested by hand. After the harvest, the grapes are dried naturally, with the aim of reducing the water content and giving the wine sugars. Fermentation takes place at controlled temperature for about 45 days. Subsequently the wine ages in barrique for 7 years.

It is characterized by a deep pomegranate red color. The nose opens with an intense and elegant almond bouquet, enriched with pleasant cherry aromas. On the palate it is powerful and complex, with a pleasantly spicy aftertaste.

Perfect to accompany roasts and grilled red meats, it is ideal in combination with game and mature cheeses.
