The Amarone of the "Il Bosco" vineyard is only made when the grapes are perfectly healthy and come from a superior quality vintage crop. The single Il Bosco Vineyard is a small area where the grapevines are more then 18 years old. Therefore, a first selection naturally takes place of a certain quantity, all to the advantage of quality. This Amarone in numbered bottles is an outstanding wine that is perfect for important, elegant meals serving red meat and wild game dishes. It is a precious companion for after-dinner meditations.

Wine EnthusiastThis boldly structured wine opens with aromas of baked plum, clove, tobacco and graphite. The firm full-bodied palate displays dried cherry, raisin, licorice, clove and espresso alongside gripping, close-grained tannins. Drink 2018-2025.
