Cellar for up to 12 years. No need to decant before serving.

The Pasqua brothers founded their family wine firm in Verona in 1925 and since then the business has been passed down through three generations of the family. Today they specialise in producing delicious and accessible Italian wines that offer exceptional value for money. As well as classic wines like this charming Amarone, their portfolio also includes more modern styles which are exported all over the world.

The grapes for this handsome Amarone della Valpolicella are grown on calcareous and clay soils which help to create great depth as well as elegance in the finished wine. The fruit is carefully harvested by hand in mid-September and left to dry for three months over the winter. This traditional practice must be used for making Amarone wines as it helps to concentrate the flavours and sugars in the grapes as they turn into raisins.

After the fruit is vinified the young wine is then moved to French oak barrels where it is left to mature for 18-20 months depending on the characteristics of the vintage. This lengthy ageing process helps to create seductive layers of flavours and aromas, including rich cassis, blackberry, dark plum and hints of tobacco, cocoa, leather, and cigar box spice. The silky tannins and bold structure make this a great wine to cellar for a few more years or enjoy now with rich game stews, venison steak, or aged cheeses.
