TASTING NOTES
Amarone DOCG has maintained unchanged its typicality, so that “the
essenceof the territory” of Valle di Mezzane and Cazzano di Tramigna powerfully emerges. Rich in colour, firmly structured but with fresh notes. This wine has personality and is also able to convey elegance and depth upon tasting.
In the palate it is rich and deep, elegant and potent at the same time, still young but already very balanced, with the typical notes of currant and wild berries that blend well with the complexity of the wine.
