Amarone Colle Cristi is made with a careful selection of all the local grape varietals grown in the Valpolicella area: 70% Corvina Veronese, 20% Rondinella and 10% Molinara. Following the traditional Amarone process, the grapes are air-dried for 4 months, then crushed. The resulting wine is aged in a combination of large oak barrels and French barriques for at least 3 years, where it develops the full, intense taste Amarone is known for.Intense garnet red color. The bouquet is intense and elegant with notes of ripe fruit and spices. Smooth and full-bodied on the palate, Colle Cristi offers notes of chocolate and truffles and lots of dried fruit aromas. Ideal with red meat, roasts, game and seasoned cheeses.
