VILLA RIZZARDI, Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Riserva DOCG

Amarone is a traditional and unique method of wine making crafted only from grapes grown in Valpolicella, grapes which are naturally dried in boxes and then pressed and fermented.

During drying, the grapes concentrate sugars and aromas which produce a wine with a high alcohol content, intensity, body and structure. Our Villa Rizzardi Amarone Riserva is bottled 4 years after the harvest having spent at least 36 months in mostly French oak barrels. Villa Rizzardi Amarone Riserva is only produced in the better vintages and can be cellared for many years.

It can be enjoyed immediately and does not need to be decanted and we recommend serving at (16°C or 60°F) with roasted or braised meat, game dishes such as venison, curry based dishes or with hard, mature cheeses such as Pecorino di Pienza.

Ageing potential: over 10 years.
