Amarone and Amarone Forlago
Amarone della Valpolicella is a wine of great structure, complex, elegant, velvety ruby red color with garnet highlights. It is traditionally paired with game dishes, grilled meats, stews and mature cheeses.
It Is produced from dried grapes of Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella, and Oseleta Negrar: harvested by hand in small boxes in early September and then leave them to rest until january/february so that the water contained in the grapes to evaporate! It is this drop in weight which allows to obtain a naturally strong concentration that can resist for more than twenty years and can thus bear the name Amarone.
The slow fermentation in stainless steel tanks and the long aging in French oak allow you to make Amarone a remarkable complexity and elegance!
We have two Amarone styles: the traditional Amarone which must be dry, tannic, with an excellent structure in order to be matched with an excellent meat or hard cheese. In the best years we produce the Forlago from the best grapes we have in our land!
The Forlago Amarone is a meditation, to be tasted in the most important days in order lunch for the pleasure of relaxing with a good glass of wine.
It is characterized by a complex bouquet characterized by fruity notes and at the same time roasted notes.
