Very fresh in style, with a good medium weight and a powerful attack of red fruits and cherry. Baking spices and dried fruits follow adding delicious complexity. Youthful yet fully approachable!

Produced only in the best harvest years, the grapes are picked from the three best cru's in Valpolicella Classica where the vines are over 20 years old. All grapes manually harvested and carefully selected, once picked they go through a natural drying process for around 6 months. After fermentation has taken place the wine spends 36 months in barrique for maturation and a further 8 months in bottle.

Azienda Agricola Le Salette is well-established as one of the leading producers in Valpolicella, located in the very high quality sub-area of Fumane. Producing from 20 hectares of vines, the estate cultivates Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella, Oseleta, Molinara, and Croatina. In the vineyard, grapes are grown slowly and carefully with the utmost respect for tradition and local techniques. The grapes are hand harvested, and only the top-quality grapes are selected to undergo the drying process to produce Amarone.
