The total amount of time that it remains in the barrels is 36 months. The final phase of the production process, which takes place once assembly of the barriques has finished and mass filtration has been obtained. The wine is bottled and left to age for a further 24 months before the final product is ready for sale.
Color: Amarone della Valpolicella is an intense, deep garnet in colour.
Nose: Nuances of truffle, tobacco and new leather wrap around the finish..
Taste: Subtle aromatic hints, that range from black cherry, blueberry to chocolate, anticipate the opulent expression of mature fruit that flows into the mouth with inadvertent persistence.
