Santa Sofia Amarone della Valpolicella 0.75cl


Santa Sofia's Amarone Classico is a Venetian red powerful and elegant at the same time . On the nose we are faced with a range of strong and delicate notes, while on the palate the drink is dynamic and juicy, supported by an important tannic texture, in which the heat deriving from the alcohol content is dampened by a good vein of freshness. A label of absolute stature, which increases its dimension even further thanks to the great final persistence. The perfect bottle to uncork during winter dinners.

This Amarone Classico comes from a blend of native red grapes from the Veneto region, Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella. These varieties are bred near the hilly terrain around the municipalities of Negrar, Fumane, San Pietro in Cariano and Mariano, where the subsoil is mainly composed of stones. After harvesting, the bunches are left to dry for a period of between 90 and 120 days in a Santa Sofia fruit cellar. After vinification the wine is first left to rest for 36 months in large Slavonian oak barrels , and then, after the bottling operations have concluded, for at least another 12 months directly in glass.

Amarone Santa Sofia develops in the glass with a typically ruby ​​colour, very dense and concentrated, practically impenetrable to the eye. The nose is rich and layered, which is told with a soul of a thousand facets, starting from fruit jam to reach spicy references and more balsamic touches. When tasted it has an excellent structure, muscular, with a austere and important sip thanks to the body of the tannins; closes with a finish with excellent persistence. A round, rich and powerful Venetian red, which faithfully describes the extraordinary soil of Valpolicella.
