Giacomo Montresor Amarone Della Valpolicella (Satinato)
Always a go-to wine to bust open during a dinner to impress your new date or your dinner guests!
A blend of Corvine Veronese 50%, Rondinella 35%, Molinara 15% cultivated in Montresor’s vineyards in the Valpolicella Classico zone (north-west of Verona).
Hints of Violets, coffee and chocolate on the nose with ripe crushed berry, bitter cherry and sweet plummy fruit on the palate. Full bodied, backed by notes of bitter chocolate. Rich and warming yet fresh and well-balanced, with supple tannins and a rich texture’.
On the palate it is intense, refined; it displays full body and smoothness, with clear notes of dried grapes.
The grapes are hand harvested at the end of October. The late harvested grapes are dried out for four months (until February of the following year) and then crushed. The must is fermented in stainless steel for four months. The wine is aged in Slavonian oak casks and small French barrique for two years.”
