Description

Grapes: 65% Corvina, 25% Rondinella & 10% Negrara

This Amarone is obtained from the best bunches harvested by hand and left to raisin in wooden crates per 4 months. After raisining, the grapes increase in sugar extracts by 25-30%. At the end of January the aged grapes are pressed and left to ferment for 30 days at controlled temperature. Then, around 70% of the wine is transferred in oak barrels, while the remaining in larger tonneaux where malolactic fermentation takes place. The wine ages in wood for about 16 months before bottling and it is aged in bottle, before being released.

The Villa Borghetti Amarone perfectly expresses its terroir: it has a broad nose, with intense forthright scents of black berries and cherries, spicy tones that are reminiscent of chocolate and freshly roasted-coffee, as well as sweetish vanillalike notes. On the palate it is warm and well-balanced, with gentle tannins. On the finish the typical notes of semi-dried grapes emerge.
