Tasting note: Amarone DOCG has maintained unchanged its typicality, so that "the essence of the territory" powerfully emerges. Rich in color, firmly structured. Spicy nose of black pepper enhances components of herbs of the field. This wine has personality and is also able to convey elegance and depth upon tasting.
In the palate it is rich and deep, savory, elegant, and potent at the same time, still young but already with soft and balanced tannins. The bouquet is broad with rich in aromas of fruit jam, red fruit, chocolate, and vanilla that blends well with the complexity of the wine.
