Ideally drink now through to 2030.

Decant 1 hour.

Deep garnet colour with cherry red tinges, the nose delivers intense dried fruit, black cherry, wood, spice, and jam. The palate offers intense fruit, black cherry, with hints of spice, vanilla and chocolate. The full bodied wine has tannins that are silky and well integrated along with good acidity that helps to balance the wine perfectly. The finish is long and persistent and allows this fabulous wine to be enjoyed a little longer.

Would match perfectly with red meat, game, venison, spicy sausages, and aged cheeses.

Amarone is made by partially drying grapes naturally in the case of Cavalchina, this is carried out by placing the grapes on small wooden trays that are then placed in a wooden hut that provides the perfect drying conditions. The purpose of partially drying the grapes is that the juice is concentrated, as are the flavours and sugars within the grapes. The grapes are hand harvested to ensure that only the best fruit is used for the wines. Traditional fermentation is used and can last for up to 3 weeks . The wine is then matured in new French oak for 12 months prior to bottling.

The great combination of alcohol, tannin and acid provides a complex and wine that has superb drinkability yet is capable of ageing well for many years.
