"Violet, mature dark-fruit and cooking-spice aromas lead the nose. The dense concentrated palate offers raisin, raspberry jam, cinnamon and cocoa alongside smooth, velvety tannins. -KO"

Product Description:

"Amarone Colle Cristi is made with a careful selection of all the local grape varietals grown in the Valpolicella area: 70% Corvina Veronese, 20% Rondinella and 10% Molinara. Following the traditional Amarone process, the grapes are air-dried for 4 months, then crushed. The resulting wine is aged in a combination of large oak barrels and French barriques for at least 3 years, where it develops the full, intense taste Amarone is known for.

Intense garnet red color. The bouquet is intense and elegant with notes of ripe fruit and spices. Smooth and full-bodied on the palate, Colle Cristi offers notes of chocolate and truffles and lots of dried fruit aromas. Ideal with red meat, roasts, game and seasoned cheeses." - Importer
