AMARONE
della Valpolicella DOCG
Purple-red colour.
Young, deep burgundy, with a scent reminiscent of wood bark, mint, oriental spices and Mediterranean flavours. Deeply aromatic to the palate, it carries hints of cherry black pepper.

Massimago’s Amarone sums up the area and the character of the grapes coming from the vineyards of Macie, Giordane and Giare. The Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella varieties are carefully selected and let to dry for around 90/100 days. The fruit of the drying process that concentrates aromas like a distilled essence, presents itself as a wine well balanced in vigour, elegance and finesse. The achieved balance is due to a long refinement in barrels made of French durmast. The garnet red burst with notes of ripe raspberries, wild blackberries and morello cherries. Silently surprising the taster, Massimago’s Amarone has also spicy and toasted notes like the black pepper, coffee beans and cloves aromas. Mint is for very sensitive noses only. Long and persistent finish.
