GRAPES: Amarone Trabucchi is produced with 80% autochthonous Corvina Veronese and Corvinone grape varieties that give the wine a ruby-red, almost garnet, colour, and a full bodied structure and rich flavour, with fresh and delicate aromas. The carefully matured Corvinone makes the wine richer, more velvety and intensely fruity. Other noteworthy indigenous vines are Rondinella, reminiscent of cherries, Oseleta, which is freshly acidic and has a good tannin content, Croatina with its ruby-red colour.
VINEYARD LOCATIONS: Fondo Cereolo, Monte Tenda, Castello. The altitude varies from 140 to 290 metres above sea level.
TRAINING SYSTEM: Veronese pergola and espalier-guyot. Production: approx 5 tonnes per hectare.
HARVEST: from the second week of September with selection of the best grapes.
PARTIAL DRYING: from September to January with an average weight loss of 50% in humidity-controlled lofts where the grapes are laid out on bamboo-lined racks.
AGEING: months in new French oak barriques.
TASTING NOTES: in the glass the color is so deep as to appear almost black. The nose is intense, clean and elegant, with hints of cherry liqueur and chocolate. On the palate, it is immediately sumptuous, robust, and full-bodied but rounded and soft and bursting with fruit -reminiscent of the cherry and chocolate found on the nose – and highly satisfying tannins. This is a big and clean wine with a flower opening that shows the total harmony. In the mouth, scents of tobacco, licorice and vanilla.
