Montenigo Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG 2017
Appellation: Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG
Varietals: Corvina, Rondinella
Tasting Notes: Ruby red color. On the nose ripe red fruit fused with the spice of wood. Powerful on the palate, the persistent tannin balances the sweetness of withering.
Food Pairing: Excellent with cured meats and long-aged cheeses. Meditation wine.
Vineyard: The grapes are biodynamically farmed on calcareous and clay, 180 meters above sea level.
Harvest: The grapes, at the right degree of ripeness, after a careful selection, are harvested by hand and placed in five kilograms trays and left to rest in the loft for over eighty days.
Vinification: The drying of the grapes used for this wine involves a loss of the original weight, resulting in the natural concentration of sugars in the must.
Fermentation occurs spontaneously, the skins are worked daily with pumping over and punching down to extract the maximum concentration and aromas. The malolactic fermentation is spontaneous.
It ages in oak barrels for at least thirty-six months before being bottled without filtration.
ABV: 16.8% by Vol.
