Vinification

This rather light Amarone della Valpolicella Classico from Cà Dei Maghi comes from vineyards located in Camparsi, in the municipality of Fumane. The soil in this vineyard consists of limestone and marl and contributes to this fruity Amarone Classico with hints of herbs and peppers. First, these grapes are carefully picked by hand. Then they are dried for 3 months. And finally, they are aged for 36 months in small wooden barrels.

Colour

This Amarone Classico has an elegant ruby red color.

Odor

In the nose there are lively aromas of, for example, plums and rich espresso in the cold morning light. In addition, there are hints of rose petals in tamarind juice.

Taste impression

Firstly, the Amarone Classico has dry tannins that are above all perfectly matched to the depth of the fruit. The wine dissolves in the mouth, as it were. But it still gives shape and direction. Finally, the fruit, typical of the wines of Cà Dei Maghi, fills the mouth with juice. The juiciness in combination with the lightness of the wine make this Amarone so unique. That is why it is well liked by real Amarone enthusiasts, but also by people who usually do not like Amarone.

Culinary advice

The pronounced body and taste sensation of this Amarone come into its own in combination with meat with present flavors, such as hare or lamb. In addition, it is a wine that lends itself well to combinations with meat from the barbecue.

Jancis Robinson

“Smells like burnt sugar and trimmings of roast beef. Flavors of plums
pudding and dark jam spread on toast with dark rye. Layers of praline,
bitter Turkish coffee, raisins. Big tannins feel like the old, well-polished mahogany newels of an Edwardian staircase. For an amarone, this is unspeakably elegant. Perfect match for hoisin duck…. (TC)”
