A matter of patience Among the stone flakes which identify Campiano's grounds, the vines are rooted in unique mineral stratifications. A complex and seductive Amarone is born, with notes of cherries and blackberries, refined for years while keeping intact freshness and elegance.
Varietals: Corvina 60%, Corvinone 25%, Rondinella 10%, Oseleta 5%.
Vinification: After the soft press, the grapes are macerated at low temperature for 3-4 days. After the pre-fermentation and maceration the must is left to ferment with its skin for 20 days, opening the cap and pumping over the must at least twice a day. The malolactic fermentation happens spontaneously in the following summer.
Maturation: The wine spends the first months in temperature-controlled steel tanks, then two years partly in 25 hl French oak barrels and partly in Burgundy barriques “sur lies”. At the end of the ageing process the wine is bottled without any filtration and spends 6 additional months maturing in the bottle before being released
Color: Intense, deep ruby red.
Nose: Fine, complex and deep. Hints of red fruit, black cherry in particular, and then notes of cocoa, licorice and tobacco, with spicy and mineral notes.
Taste: On the palate it is dry, warm, elegant with a robust structure and good acidity. Dense, round and intense, with a clear and persistent finish. Wine suitable for long aging.
Serving temperature: 16/18° C.
Serving suggestions: Game, Brasato meat, aged cheese or alone as "Vino da Meditazione".
