Amarone della Valpolicella Docg - Corte Canella
AMARONE DELLA VALPOLICELLA DOCG
"The wine of patience, calm and silence.
Our idea of Amarone comes from the idea of wanting to hear the sound of the soil beneath our feet when we walk.
What does this wine need? The opportunity to express itself."
Power, balance and elegance perfectly match the ruby red colour and the scent of ripe red fruit that fills your mouth with every sip. It’s appointed as the King of Italian red wines for its round flavour and its well-definite character. Wine of great depth and persistence, it is the result of a meticulous attention to the vine and the grapes from the very beginning. The outcome of the long process of drying the grapes for more than 90 days, aging the wine in toasted oak barrels for about 30 months and then in bottles for a further year. All this in order to allow nature to take its course and then fully enjoy the product. A perfect balance of Corvinone, Corvina and Rondinella.
