Only 100 bottles left
The Forlago Amarone is a meditation, to be tasted in the most important days in order lunch for the pleasure of relaxing with a good glass of wine.
It is characterized by a complex bouquet characterized by fruity notes and at the same time roasted notes.
Forlago is avaible only in the best years: the selection of the bunches is really strict and they have been dryed for more than 5 months. So it must be aged in the barrels for a longer period to smooth the tannins. The Forlago is a real meditation wine! Grape Varietals: corvina (70%), corvinone rondinella oseleta and negrara
Harvesting Method Manual selection of the best bunches
Drying process Naturally dried for more than 5 months Fermentation & Aging In temperature controlled stainless steel tanks with natural yeasts. The fermentation required more than 55 days and 3 times each day we make a gentle breaking up of the marc with air to extract much more as possible from the skins!
Aging: The wine has been aged for 36 months in french oak barrels (a mix of new, first and second use to have different aging charateristics) It has been aged 18 months in the bottle before to be tasted! Color Intense ruby red Bouquet/Taste Warm and spicy bouquet, with aromas of raisins.
This is due to the fact that the grapes have been dried before fermenting. You can smell vanilla, chocolate and cherry flavours. It’s a really meditation wine: it’ really persistent !
Food Pairings: It can be paired with really strong meat or cheeses. With a good Gorgonzola or at the end of the meal with dark chocolate or a cigar like a liquor.
Serving Temperature: 18°C
Recommended glass: balloon-shaped stemmed glass
