Scuola Grande Amarone D.O.C.G. della Valpolicella


Tasting Notes

This wine is powerful, rich and smooth with bitter cherry and sweet plummy fruit on the palate - backed by notes of bitter chocolate. Rich and warming yet fresh and well balanced, with supple tannins and a rich texture. Cherry, plum and black cherries on the nose with a hint of toasted almonds. A deep, dark, intense colour with pleasant slight granite shades. Bouquet is a sequence of perceptions of cherry, plum, and black cherries under liquor and toasted almond; interesting final notes of coffee, tobacco and cocoa.

Additional Info

Created from 45% up to 95% Corvina grapes, Corvinone up to maximum 50% if substituting the same percentage of Corvina, Rondinella (from 5% to 30%) and small percentages of Oseleta and Molinara grape varieties.

Food Matching

Amarone della Valpolicella combines well with game and grilled red meats as well as with long seasoned aged hard cheese. Also a great contemplation wine
