The wine, of garnet-russet hue, is slightly sweet, warm, robust, full, harmonious, velvety with a most satisfying touch of bitterness. It is the ideal wine with game and has no rivals as an accompaniment to hard cheeses. But its most characteristic role is as an after-dinner wine, for sipping in moments of intimacy, or for fuelling lively post-prandial conversation. It should be opened at least two hours before consumption and consumed at ambient temperature. It is the classic wine of friendship.

Wine SpectatorDried fig and date notes enrich the baked cherry, eucalyptus and coffee liqueur flavors in this ripe and juicy Amarone, with creamy tannins. Medium- to full-bodied, showing ample spice and citrus details lingering on the finish. Drink now through 2026. 2,000 cases made.
