Description

An Italian Amarone red wine using organically farmed grapes from vineyards in the Mezzane di Sotto hills, a little green paradise with cosy and well-worked slopes. Only 20% of San Cassiano's grapes of perfect maturation are selected for use in their Amarone.  Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella grapes go through slow, low temperature drying. Ageing is in French oak for 24 months with a further 12 months in bottle before release.

This Amarone shows aromas of raisins, plums, prunes, dark chocolate, slight leather and the finest touch of oak. The palate has full-bodied structure, but still fresh and versatile, showing dried black cherry, blackberry extract, liquorice, ground pepper and firm, fine-grained tannins. Try with slow-cooked red meats, steaks, hearty casseroles, and flavourful mushroom dishes. 

The winery takes their name from the little village San Cassiano, in the core of Mezzane Valley, where olive trees are caressed by the sun. The story began in 1964 by tenant farmer Albino Sella and it has now expanded to reach three thousand olive trees and 4 hectares of vineyard with Albino's grandson Mirko Sella, who founded Azienda Agricola San Cassiano in 2004. They try to respect the environment as much as possible when creating their wine and olive oil.
