The Amarone “Canova” from Cà Dei Maghi is made from dried grapes from the ‘Canova’ vineyard. These grapes are picked by hand and then dried for 3 to 4 months. Finally, the wine matures in large wooden barrels for 60 months.
The Amarone “Canova” has a ruby red color. This color resembles, for example, the light reflections of a pomegranate.
In the nose, the Amarone “Canova” is broad and refined. First, there are aromas of red fruit infused with liquor, which are typical of the denomination. In addition, there are notes of rhubarb, blond tobacco and cinnamon. Finally, there are hints of cinchona and chocolate.
On the palate, Cà Dei Maghi’s showpiece is enveloping and structured, with an enormous balanced versatility: berries, blackberries and chocolate… Above all, this wine is a real pleasure for every wine lover.
Paolo Creazzi is a very talented winemaker who has access to unique terroirs. This has resulted in a great rating from, for example, Decanter . Firstly, Cà Dei Maghi’s Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico “Canova” received 95 points. But above all, it was voted “Best Amarone in tasting”.
The Amarone “Canova” can be combined very well with many meat dishes. Examples include boiled, fried, stewed or roasted meat & game. But it also goes well with hard aged cheeses such as the Pecorino, Parmagiano Reggiano or Taleggio.
