Lenotti Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG Classico
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 recommented.
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.
