Tasting Notes

Righetti’s Amarone is produced from selected Corvina (70%), Rondinella (20%) and other indigenous varietals (10%) grown in the hills of the Valpolicella Classico DOC. The finest bunches of ripe grapes are placed in shallow, wood crates and left to dry over a period of 3-5 months. Thereafter, the grapes are pressed, the juice is fermented to dryness, and the wine is aged in large casks of Slavonian oak.

Deep ruby red, full-bodied, a very complex nose that emphasizes dried fruit, black cherry, sweet spices and a hint of anise. This wine exhibits extremely rich flavors with a velvety and lingering finish. Well balanced with good acidity, sweet oak and alcohol. What remains is a highly extracted fruit driven wine that presents with 15.2% Alc.
