Terre Molin Amarone

Terre Molin Amarone

WHY WE LOVE IT

  • Cantina de Verona is the merging of two historic and highly recognized cooperatives.
  • Amarone is a great red wine from the Veneto region, famous throughout the world as the ambassador for Italian wine- making excellence.
  • Grapes are hand selected from the highest quality in Verona.

Varietal Composition: Corvina and Corvinone Veronese, Rondinella

Elaboration:  Amarone is produced from native Valpolicella grapes such as Corvina, Rondinella, Corvinone and Molinara, which are left to dry for a few months until they reach a remarkable aromatic richness. Grape bunches are hand-picked and rigorously selected at the end of September. Soft pressing of the grapes in December/January, followed by maceration on the skins of 30 days. 60% of the wine is refined for 24 months in big oak barrels, and 40% of the wine is refined for 18 months in new French barriques from Allier oak. The wine remains in bottle for 6 months before it is released.

Tasting Notes: Terre Molin Amarone has the scent of dried plums and cherries with hints of undergrowth and dried mushrooms. The palate is of ripe red fruits embellished with cinnamon and vanilla. The older it gets, it achieves a leather, tanned tobacco and roasted coffee taste. The fruity aromas are reminiscent of black cherry, currant, cherry and wild berries. Terre Molin Amarone can be cellared for over 20 years.
