Wine maker notes
Amarone Cinque Stelle is an excellent masterpiece. This is the best result that its possible to obtain from a careful selection of the grapes Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Molinara after a drying process for about 3-4 months. Thanks to this process we obtain a wine with an amazing concentration of sugars, tannins and extracts. After that, grapes undergoes a soft pressing process and a slow fermentation for over 40 days at controlled temperature with skins. Aging in wood barrels: 60% Slavonian oak barrels of 5000 litres and 40% in French barriques for about 3 years. Bottle fining for about one year.

Technical notes
Alcohol: 16% Vol

Food pairing
