“Conte Gastone” Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG BIO
65% Corvina, 25% Corvinone, 10% Rondinella. Intense red ruby with garnet red rims. Pronounced notes of plum, black cherry, cloves and black pepper. Smooth velvety palate with flavours of red cherries and plum. Finely balanced between the sweet and savory elements; earthy and rich.
The grapes are carefully hand selected and harvested, then placed on flat wooden trays and left to dry for 90 days in our special “Fruttaio” (drying room), where humidity and temperature are strictly controlled. The dried grapes are destemmed and gently crushed before a prolonged maceration lasting more than 25 days in stainless steel vats with frequent pump-overs.
“A modern Amarone, best enjoyed with food.”
