Amarone della Valpolicella DOC Classico “Ambrosan” by Nicolis
After the grapes are selected and harvested in the vineyard “Ambrosan”, they are placed in small cases in large, dry, well aired rooms. In this way, the grapes dry naturally and gain an extraordinary high concentration of sugars and aromas. After 4 months, the grapes are softly pressed. Due to the low temperature, fermentation is long and the maceration takes more than one month. The wine makes an ageing partially in medium-sized Slavonia oak barrels and partially in small oak barriques. Bottle ageing for at least 8 months before release.
Princely wine, full bodied, elegant and vigorous. The colour is an intense garnet red. The flavour is dry and generous, powerful and delicate. Its fragrances remind to ripe fruits, autumn leaves and leather.
Suitable with game, spicy cheese and roast meat. Between meals, it is indicated as a “meditation” wine. Uncork at least an hour before serving, pouring it into large ballon glasses.
