Vinification Details

  • These grapes were naturally dried for 3-4 months in a drying facility. This was followed by a gentle pressing and destemming and fermentation lasted up to 14 days with regular periodic pump overs. The wine was aged in oak for 12 months.

History

  • Run by Luca Degani since 1995, the Cantina di Valpantena is now one of Italy's best co-operatives, with 700 hectares of vineyard producing excellent quality fruit.

Regional Information

  • The grapes for this Amarone are grown on flatter sites around the Verona hills, at altitudes between 100-350 metres above sea level. The soils here are chalky and poor, and the vines are planted using the traditional Guyot training system.

Not an Amarone as I know it.

3 stars

It does not have the depth of a good Amarone and rather than a subtle sweetness has a slightly acidic finish which I do not expect from this type of wine. Its ok but there is a reason it is less expensive than most Amarone's.

Worth getting to know.

5 stars

Incredible flavours and depth from a unique method of winemaking. Not too heavy but profound nonetheless. This is overlooked sadly. Seriously this is worth getting to know even though you may have not heard of it before.

Superb !

5 stars

This is absolutely superb ! To find a premium wine such as Amarone under Tesco own label is real find. My favourite red wine, particularly as i've only ever bought it when the 25% events are on - a (relative) bargain !

Ideal for a special occasion it is really smooth.

This is a marvellous wine, never had a bad bottle

5 stars

This is a marvellous wine, never had a bad bottle although I only drink it on special occasions and when my rich son buys it for me. He introduced me to it, thank you son. Too strong for my partner so I have to drink it all myself 😔😉

Very nice indeed

5 stars

A port nose, christmas fruits and lingering spicy finish. A lovely drop. Best with meatballs or soft smelly cheeses

Full bodied and very smooth. Yum.

5 stars

Fool bodied, yet smooth. It is a very good wine indeed. With chocolaty aftertaste.

A surprise 73rd birthday gift from my eldest son,

5 stars

A surprise 73rd birthday gift from my eldest son, and I was expecting ‘supermarket plonk’. What a surprise! This bottle was full-bodied and smooth, with a delicious chocolate and spicy finish. What a pity I had no one to share it with!
