On the nose, the fragrances meet in a whirlwind of red fruits, dried flowers, sweet spices, black cherry jam, coffee and chocolate. This Amarone has the distinction of being aged in 4 different wood species; oak, chestnut, cherry and mulberry. This ageing gives it aromas of spices and delicate oak, supported by good acidity, giving it freshness and pleasure with each sip.
