Aged for 48 months in French tonneaux.
Bure Alto Amarone della Valpolicella Riserva belongs to the traditional style of Amarone. Deriving from the French school, with extended and knowing use of the oak and long ageing times. Compared with the modern/international style of Amarone, the complexity achieves far broader horizons.
Dark ruby red, with orange tinges. Dense, with concentrated, balanced aromas of prune, date, caramel and polished oak. Full and compact, delivering layers of ripe fruit and fine, soft tannins that give a light pull on the long finish. Subtle acidity winds through the wine, culminating in a lingering, mouthwatering finish.
Food pairing: juicy steaks, roasts, grilled meats (lamb), pigeons and game, hard cheese.
Vegetarian: heavy vegetarian courses with, for example, bases made by legumes, grains, or tasty mushrooms, well-matured cheeses.
