The grapes are left to dry for 120 days, with the wine then spending one year in barrique and two years in large-volume 25hl Slavonian oak barrels. It's a blend of 45% Corvinone, 45% Corvina and 10% Rondinella. Michael Garner: Ethereal red fruit aromas joined by shades of tobacco and spice, followed by an intense palate of bright fresh fruit underscored by notes of seasoned oak and charred spice. Heady and distinctive. Andrew Jefford: Refined and elegant aromas: subtle and enticing, with great harmony. It's light and graceful on the palate, in a very classical style akin to ultra-traditional Barolo, aged to a state of great harmony and finesse. Monty Waldin: Seems nicely unforced and easy to enjoy, with a wonderfully transparent fruit and oak profile. We have here a gratifying antidote to the caricature that contemporary Amarone can be - namely big blockbusters, too bold and boisterous. Drinking window: 2019-2026. Score - 95.
