Drink now through to 2028. Decant 2 hours before serving.

The magnificent Ambrosan Amarone is the flagship wine of the Nicolis estate which is run by brothers Giancarlo and Giuseppe. The family work around 40 hectares of vineyards which include some of the Valpolicella region’s finest sites for making Amarone. This single vineyard Amarone is crafted with grapes sourced from the family’s Ambrosan plot which is located in the hills at an altitude of between 200 and 480 metres.

All of the grapes harvested by hand and then left for four months in a well-ventilated room. This process turns the grapes into raisins, helping to add concentration of flavour and greater body and richness to the finished wine. They then undergo a slow fermentation and maceration for one month before being aged in Slavonian oak barrels for a period of 30 months.

The result is a bold, intense wine that opens with rich aromas of black cherry jam, raisins, sweet baking spice and hints of tobacco and leather. On the palate you’ll immediately notice the full body and ripe tannins along with seductive dark berry, cigar box and bitter chocolate flavours. The Ambrosan Amarone is an ideal partner to accompany a special meal of game or roasted meat and also makes an excellent candidate for extended cellar ageing.
