Grape Varieties

Corvina, Corvinone, Rodinella, Oseleta

Vineyards: The vineyards are located 300 to 350 meters above sea level and they are north-east facing. The vine is trained in a single guyot. Mainly marly soil with layers of red soil.

Harvest: The grapes that, thanks to the particular exposition and natural ventilation, can reach a perfect healthy maturation, are harvested in small wooden trays and left to dry.

Vinification: The drying hut is 300m above sea level where the optimum climatic conditions allow for a natural drying. In order to reach the best expression and complexity, the drying process continues until optimal parameters are reached. Then the traditional fermentation is made with a mixed method of remontage and delestage. The fermentation, due to the low temperature and high sugar content, continues for a long time. After several days’ maceration on the skins, the wine is then drawn off and put into small barrels. The wine from the barriques is then blended in a large barrel, in which it is kept for about a year until bottling.

Tasting notes: The low Ph is exceptional for such a big wine and gives to the Amarone Torre d’Orti a deep vibrant color and great drinkability. Even with the high alcohol level, the structure and tannins make this wine sophisticated, balanced and capable of great aging. The complex and deep bouquet with an intense spiciness, especially pepper and cherry notes, makes the grape and the technique used and the provenience of this wine easily recognizable on the nose.

Amarone della Valpolicella docg 2010 - 89 punti

Concentrated and powerfully structured, this features aromas of plum cake, blueberry, vanilla and baking spices. The palate delivers prune, raisin, crushed blackberry and white pepper but the searing alcohol sensations throw it off balance and give it a one-dimensional quality.

Amarone della Valpolicella docg 2008 - 89 punti

A wine with pronounced personality, this bold offering delivers textured, almost gritty tannins, with lush notes of sweet fruit, candied raspberry, black cherry, nutmeg, clove, chocolate and toasted almond. The palate bears spicy flavors of smoked bacon and beef jerky.

Amarone della Valpolicella docg 2007 - 89 punti

Cured meat, smoked bacon, dried herb and Indian spice pretty much sum up the bold aromatic profile of this superrich Amarone. Characteristic fruit tones of prune and black plum do pop up on the finish, giving the wine a smooth close.
