Tasting Notes

Liquidy and dense with pulpy ripe black plums whipped with dark streaks of licorice, this Amarone demonstrates the unique character of a wine made from a traditiional producer's backyard grapes. Obscure indigenous grape, Oseleta is even thrown into the mix. Aromas of wild flowers and rosehips emmante as the wine opens in the glass. The Morini family uses huge Slavonian oak tonneaux to mature the wine for 30 months after a temperature controlled fermentation. The wine spends 10 months in bottle before release.
