Information on the production
Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG is the result of a unique production process known as "appassimento". This involves laying out the grapes on a drying machine for several months. During this phase, they lose almost half of their original weight, which enhances their aromas and essences. After the "pigiatura" or pressing of the grapes is completed in January, the fermentation process continues until summer. The wine is then aged in French oak barrels and tonneaux, a process that lasts between 42 and 50 months. In addition, the wine enjoys a further one-year ageing in the bottle.
With its dense garnet red and black heart, it presents itself as a true symbol of intensity.
The 2015 Amarone Monte Tabor entices with a bouquet full of delicious aromas, including sweet black cherries, pickled blackberries, figs and dates. There are also enticing notes of dark chocolate, coffee and roasted rosemary. Despite its aroma richness, it is refreshing and mineral, a typical representative of its kind.
The Amarone awakens the palate with its intense fruit and pleasant sweet richness, yet remains refreshing and elegant. This is thanks to a balance of acidity and tannins that give it an extra dimension of finesse and character. A wine with levels of depth and class that is ideal for the cooler autumn and winter months and pairs beautifully with hearty stews and braised dishes.
Alternative recommendation for food accompaniment:
Roast duck stuffed with cranberries, pecans and rosemary, served with curd dumplings. Veal shank with red cabbage and porcini mushroom risotto. Mini tartlets of blue cheese, premium dark chocolate and currants for an elegant finish.
