Free shipping on orders over £100 using code FREE100
Made exclusively from grapes from La Coeta vineyard. Aged for 30 months in tonneaux from Allier.
Deep garnet red with still purple reflections. The bouquet is reminiscent of juicy cherries, dried fruit, sultanas, cooked prunes and wild herbs, but also white pepper, mocha and liquorice. Full, complex and velvety on the palate, fine and round, with soft tannins and long persistence.
Even though very close to the traditional style of Amarone, this is still a modern and more international style. The oaky/toasted elements are more pronouced than other Amarone in the modern style. There is also a strong expression of its unique terroir.
Food pairing: juicy steaks, grilled meat, barbeque, ribs, lamb, pigeons, hard cheese.
Vegetarian: heavy vegetarian courses with legume base such as stews, risottos or stews with La Coeta sauce and well-matured cheese.
