Amarone della Valpolicella Classico DOCG

That is the youngest of our Amarone, we thought for those who have the pleasure to invest in a young wine, but with a great future.

Vintage: 2015

Ask winemaker

It is our youngest Amarone, a perfect combination between tradition and present, between easy-drinking quality and intensity, able to face longer aged Amarone wines in terms of taste and peculiarity. The big deal of this wine is the origin from a land historically devoted to great wine production as the Valpolicella Classica is. Lively as its red colour, it’s an important wine, elegant and modern, food friendly.
