This Amarone is produced from hand-harvested grape bunches selected for perfect maturation. After 100 days of drying indoors and with a weight loss of 50%, the wine receives a prolonged pre- and post-fermentation maceration using only indigenous yeasts. The wine is matured in large Slavonian oak casks for 42 months before bottling.
Amarone is an intensely concentrated and complex wine known for its power and high alcohol. Marco Speri strives to combine Amarone’s boldness with freshness and elegance by harvesting healthy fruit and working carefully in the cellar to maintain purity of flavor. Aromas and flavors of dried Morello cherries and warm baking spices are followed by a ripe but refreshing palate. Infused with the strength and soul of its native land, its nature tamed and matured to develop such elegant energy. Finally free to express its notes with a refined intensity, it will offer a truly unique experience.
Amarone della Valpolicella is a high-alcohol and full-bodied wine, so it requires full flavors at the table. Roasts or braises of beef, game, and lamb, or a rich stew of meat and vegetables work extremely well with Amarone. It is the classic pairing for a red-wine risotto and is one of the world’s great wines for pairing with cheese.
