AMARONE CLASSICO DOP “XXX ANNI IN 2 SECOLI”- LIMITED EDITION- CORTEFORTE
Every ten years, if the quality of the harvest allows it, we present a special and limited edition amarone to celebrate Corteforte’s anniversary. “XXX Years in 2 Centuries” 1989-2019 was produced with the grapes of the year 2013 and we are particularly proud of it for the abundance of aromas, which recall ripe berries, spices and cocoa; the richness of taste that harmoniously adds cherries in alcohol, leather and dried flowers to the hints of smell and the flourishing and luxuriant finish, a crowning full of all the previous promises.
Corteforte was built at the beginning of the 15th century, in a strategic point of the valley of Fumane, in a district of the town denominated Osan. Originally the fortification was made of four lateral towers, connected by high stone walls and proved to be an important defense against North Barbarian invasions. As the sights and sounds of battle long faded into history, time and extensive reconstruction have softened the features of Corteforte and in the 17th century it was transformed into a noble house with a bucolic courtyard, when it was bought by a noble family of Verona. Now only one tower remains. It has been completely restored at the end of the eighties and partially transformed into an agriturismo and winery, named Corteforte.
