Casalforte Amarone Della Valpolicella


Grape: Corvina

Country: Italy

Region: Veneto / Amarone della Valpolicella

Body: Full

Abv: 15%

Size: 75cl

This Amarone della Valpolicella uses the well-honed method of slow-fermenting partially dried (Apassimento) Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara grapes on skins. This achieves the deep concentration and subtle sweetness of classic Amarone. 

Veneto's Casalforte follow this with a minimum of 18 months' ageing in oak. The result is a deep ruby wine exuding a complex bouquet of cinnamon, cherry jam and walnut. The palate brings lots of ripe black cherry with notes of vanilla and coffee on the long finish. Try with rich tomato pasta dishes, grilled beef and lamb, game, or mature cheeses. 

Casalforte (previously Castelforte) is Cantine Riondo Winery’s premium line representing the finest interpretation of the winemaking tradition of Veneto terroirs. Wines are elegant and full-bodied that pair perfectly with the most complex and sophisticated dishes of Italian and international cuisine.
