Drink now through to 2030. No need to decant before serving.

This powerful Amarone is sure to please lovers of big, bold reds thanks to its opulent flavour profile and well-built structure. The nose opens with hints of bright red cherry, cassis and dark plum complemented by dried fruit, tobacco and cigar box from the oak ageing. On the palate there are deep, concentrated dark fruit flavours with dark chocolate, coffee, and mocha along with a full body, smooth texture and firm tannins.

After the Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella grapes are harvested they are dried in the traditional way for 90-110 days to concentrate the sugars and flavours. The grapes are then vinifed and aged in barriques for 12 months followed by another 12 months in 3000 litre casks. The well-built structure makes this a great contender for extended cellar ageing over the next decade or so, and it can also be enjoyed now alongside hearty red meat dishes like beef bourguignon or a rib eye steak.

The Cottini family have been winemakers for generations, so it was only natural for Paolo Cottini to found his own winery in the small medieval town of Castelrotto in the heart of the Valpolicella region. His vineyards are located in the Negrar Valley and Valgatara at between 250-480 metres of altitude.
