Il Canovino Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG

Intense ruby red colour with violet edge. Warm, spicy, powerful bouquet with intense aromas of cherry, bitter almond and vanilla. Full, rich, velvety flavour.

Traditionally served with game, braised, meats and fully matured cheeses. Generally considered a wine for meditation, it is great after-dinner. It should be opened one hour before meals. Recommended drinking temperature 17-18 °C.

Corvina Veronese 60 %, Corvinone Veronese 20%, Rondinella 15%, Oseleta 5%. Bunches are hand picked.

Selected hillside wineyards, between 200 and 250 above sea level, located in the Valpolicella area, planted in calcareous soils. Withering from mid-September for 100 days with natural weight decline of 60%. Scrupulous care and control of the integrity and health of the bunch in the drying loft.

100% of the wine is refined for 36 months in 30hl Slavonia oak barrels, then 12 months in the bottle.
