This wine is closely connected to the greatest wine of Valpolicella: Amarone. After pressing the dried grapes from which Amarone is made, Valpolicella wine is passed over the still warm marc of Amarone. A second alcoholic fermentation begins which increases the alcoholic content and the wine becomes richer in color, bouquet and body.
Color:Deep ruby red. Bouquet:Intense, elegant and persistent with hints of black cherry and plum. Taste:Harmonious and velvety, with a good structure.
-Winemaker's Notes

94 pts James Suckling

This is so refined and focused with layers of fruit and ultra-fine tannins. Plenty of chocolate and spice, too. Medium to full body, integrated tannins and a focused finish. Drink or hold.

90 pts Wine Spectator

This elegant red is well-balanced, layering light, creamy tannins and flavors of plumped cherry, anise and orange peel in a medium-bodied frame. A hint of graphite-laced mineral lingers on the finish. Drink now through 2024.
