2015 Lenotti Amarone
della Valpolicella DOCG Classico

$69.48

$416.88 / case of 6 x 750ml incl taxes & bottle deposit

Dry, warm, full-bodied and intense wine; its flavours and scents are emphasized by the very long period of ageing in wood butts. Intense, with the scents of the selected wooden barrels.

Alcohol: 15.5% vol.

Color: Dark brick ruby red

Area of Production: Classic area of Valpolicella north of Verona. Estate in the hills near the village of S. Ambrogio di Valpolicella.

Grapes: Produced in extremely limited quantities only in the best years from the best red grapes of Valpolicella ( 70% Corvina, 25% Rondinella and 5% Oseleta) which dry out in cases until late winter and are traditionally vinified in January-February.

Vinification and Production System: Soft pressing, slow fermentation (that can last also some months) at controlled temperature (22-23°C.), ageing in oak wood butts for 3-5 years, cold bottling in sterile bottling line.

Serving Temperature: Room temperature (18-19°C.), one hour decanting recommended.

Preservation: Already adequately aged and ready for consumption, but that can be kept for several years without any problem. Store in a fresh, dry and dark place.

Pairing Suggestions: Wine for roasts and games, very pleasant at the end of the meal with mature cheeses. This exceptional wine needs to be savoured slowly to be appreciated in full.

About Amarone

Amarone is one of the most commonly known more expensive wines. Interestingly, its commercial production did not begin until the 1950s.  Before then, it was a local special-occasion wine enjoyed only locally in Veneto. It is an expensive wine to produce because the grapes are dried before the juice pressing, with as much as 40% of the water volume lost.  This results in concentrated flavour and a wine with a deeper, fuller and richer taste. 

Three local red wine grapes are typically used for Amarone: Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara. The Corvina grape is its backbone. Lenotti’s Amarone substitutes Oseleta grapes for the Molinara.  Produced in limited quantities, the grape imparts the aromas of herbs and cinnamon.

Lenotti’s Amarone is produced in very limited quantities only in the best harvest years.  It is a big wine with good depth and balance. In its bouquet, it offers intense notes of Lenotti’s high-quality oak woods.

On the palate, the Lenotti Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is simultaneously lovely and bitter, intense and velvety.  To enjoy its full quality, savour this Amarone at a leisurely pace. And, as noted above, be sure to decant this fine wine for a good hour.
