"Il Velluto" Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Docg Riserva 2010

"Il Velluto" Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Docg Riserva 2010 - Azienda Agricola Meroni

Amarone wine unique production methodology and longevity

On the Maso estates at la Grola, from where Amarone historically originated, the Meroni  family works on the best “VELLUTO” AMARONE with Corvina Veronese, Corvinone, Rondinella and Molinara autochthonal grapes

A classic Amarone from Valpolicella with a 15,00-17,00% alcholic strength, unique wine in its origin, ancient varieties and production method

A ruby red wine with an ethereal bouquet and the delicate perfume of liqueur cherries, red mulberry jam, violets, liquorice, tamarind and spices

It is warm and majestic to the palate, of great body and roundness from the “velvet” tannin, with an ending that perfectly conforms to the result in the palate, elegant with everything at meals and with red meat, game and mature cheeses, a wine in continual evolution for a lengthy maturation

Accurately chosen grapes, hand-picked at the beginning of October, a 4-5 month natural drying out for on rush matting, pressing, drawing from the vat after  60 days and maturation in a small, 20-25 hl, wooden barrels for 5 years until bottling. The wine refined in the bottle for at least a year
