The 3-hectare Coste Bianche vineyard is located about 250 metres above the town of Negrar, in the province of Verona, Northern Italy. The name comes from the light colored soil, rich in clay and limestone. The vines are an average of 20-years-old and they are trained using the typical Pergola Veronese method, with average yields of just 1.8 kg of grapes per plant. The grapes are fermented slowly over 30 days and the resulting wine aged 20 months in first and second use American and French barriques
This gorgeous Amarone has a lovely and intense dark garnet color. It exudes aromas and flavors of black cherries, chocolate, coffee, and raisins, along with a note of almonds. Despite a formidable structure, the palate is velvety, spicy and elegant, with an extremely long and lingering finish.
The rich, supple palate means this wine can be enjoyed now, but it will also reward patient cellaring through to 2025+
