Notes: Aromas of dried cherry & dark plums are followed by hints of mocha & dark chocolate on the nose. A powerful, full-bodied palate opens with a spiced fruit character & supportive tannins. Raisin & candied peel notes come from the ‘ripasso’ method & are layered with rounded, ripe cherry flavours. The finish is long with added spicy nutmeg notes. Once fermentation was complete, a second fermentation took place on the skins of the Torre del Falasco Amarone in the traditional ‘ripasso’ method. An excellent quality wine & one of our best-selling mid-range Italian reds.

 

Producer Info: The Torre del Falasco wines are the standard bearers of this co-operative, situated in the Valpantena, northeast of Verona. Known as the ’valley of god’ to the ancient Greeks, this area is well-known for its high quality red wines, due partly to the soils but also because of the cool breeze that blows down the valley from the foothills of the Dolomites. Run by Luca Degani since 1995, the Cantina di Valpantena is now one of Italy’s best co-operatives, with 700 hectares of vineyard producing excellent quality fruit.
