Monte Tondos Amarone Riserva is made from a blend of the best quality grapes they obtain from their vineyard in Valpolicella DOC. The grapes are hand-harvested in early October. After picking they put the grapes in boxes and leave them to dry in dry and well ventilated rooms called "fruttai". By the end of January, the grapes have lost around 40-45% of their juice and are ready for vinification. The wine is aged for 5 years in large slavonian oak barrel (30hl). plus a further 6 months in bottle before release.
Deep ruby in colour. Intense aromas of dark cherry and plum with a hint of cocoa. Deliciously rich and fruity, very dense, with great length. Serve with rich game dishes and very mature cheeses.
