LOOP LINE TASTING NOTES | This is a serious and complex wine, with aromas of red cherry, rose, mint and cedar wood. It is produced using the passito method: grapes are picked by hand early, when they still have high levels of natural acidity. Then, they are dried indoors, in fruttaio, for ninety days to concentrate sugars and flavours. The partially dried grapes are softly crushed and left to macerate for five days, followed by fermentation in stainless steel tanks. After the fermentation is finished, the wine ages for six months – again in stainless steel tanks to amplify its fruity flavours. Next, it is transferred into big oak barrels to age in a cold cellar for two years. Finally, the wine is bottled and left to rest for another year to integrate the aromas. The best Amarone wines are famous for their intensely concentrated flavours of red berries and spices, high alcohol and medium to high tannins, and this wine is no exception.

Medium garnet colour. Elegant aromas of kirsch, red plum and rose, underpinned by notes of eucalyptus, cedar wood, tobacco and dried figs. On the palate, this Amarone wine is dry and full-bodied, with high acidity, firm gripping tannins and a high level of alcohol. Sip it to feel the taste of red plum, rose, spices and red cherry jam, leading to a lasting finish.

“Ripe, plush plum and baked strawberry fruit with an appealing savoury game character. Abundant spicy oak and a lingering finish.” – Decanter
