Amarone 2012 (Tenuta Vignega)
Red Wine of Italy
Intense ruby with a good transparency, very consistent. The bouquet is ethereal with hints of ripe fruit, especially cherries. With hints of toasted wood and cocoa, the palette is round, full bodied, harmonious, soft and balanced. Very persistent with a long aftertaste of cherries in brandy.

The vineyards of Tenuta Vignega are in the town of Pescantina, in the northern part of the town, just close to Sant’Ambrogio di Valpolicella in the Classic area of Valpolicella d.o.c. This is a hillside area at 140 mt above the sea level. the soil is well-drained as it has a skeleton with a gravelly bedrock of limestone. The limestone texture of this soil ( originated from the oceanic depths during the Mesozoic era) is very important for the vine: it retains humidity and releases it during dry periods. The climate is mild and dry thanks to the ventilation that comes from the nearby mountains. The vineyard of Tenuta Vignega have a ‘Guyot’ way of training and they have an optimal southern exposure. For the respect of the environment, we cultivate following the organic farming method, certified by BIOS since 1999. The wines, produced with the typical blend Corvina and Corvinone, maintain the characteristic of tradition, with cherry hints and an elegant tertiary. They are important wines, dry, austere, but easy to drink and with a long aftertaste.
