The high levels of chalk and surface marl are the main elements needed to obtain wines that are very fine and elegant with good freshness, medium body and low ph. making them perfect for long aging. The Corvina gives spiciness and cherry aromas, Corvinone gives glycerine and vibrant freshness, Rondinella adds delicate fruit and light floral aromas whilst Oseleta provides colour and robust tannins.

Wine SpectatorWell-knit and silky in texture, with refined tannins framing the layers of dried cherry and black currant fruit. Aromatic notes of herb and spice show a deep accent of rich wood smoke that builds through to the lasting finish. Drink now through 2023. 600 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastThis robust Amarone has an earthy fragrance of underbrush, mushroom and tobacco leaf along with plum and spice notes. The dense, delicious palate offers rich black cherry, ripe raspberry, cinnamon and vanilla. It's concentrated, with a velvety texture.

Wine AdvocateThe 2008 Amarone della Valpolicella is a fully loaded wine that follows a classic, albeit simple, lineup of ripe fruit and exotic spice. The spice element is particularly well-defined with accents of sandalwood, church incense and fragrant cedar that are almost overboard. This Amarone carries a heavy load of oak. Only time will tell if those wood influences can successfully integrate. Drink 2015-2022.
