Sipping Fine Wine

After pressing dried grapes from making Amarone, Valpolicella wine is passed over the still warm skins of Amarone for 2nd alcoholic fermentation, increasing the alcoholic content and color. Deep Ruby with aromas of sweet dried berry fruits and pepper spice. On the palate ripe blackberry, currants and sweet cherry with complex spice. Well balanced with acidity and alcohol, full-body with soft tannins on lingering finish. Nice value. Good now!

An elegant smooth dark fruit wine, after 30 minutes leather and slight licorice nose, very tasty balanced acidity and long finish. A solid pick.

Opened for a fancy celebratory dinner to accompany filet mignon & risotto. Held up to the robust food. Quite complex, lots of raisin and dark fruit. Worth the money if you’re looking to treat yo self.
