Amicone comes from the most noble vines in the heart of Valpolicella, Italy to create flavors of big black and red fruit that mingle with chocolate, coffee and spice. The healthiest and most developed grapes are chosen dring the harvest to undergo a drying process in a temperature controlled environment, in order to guarantee a superb wine. Corvina grapes undergo a drying process on racks after harvest, while the Rondinella and Molinara grapes ripen on the vine like raisins.
The result is a full-bodied yet soft, ruby red wine with aromas or raspberry and black cherry. A slow aging process in oak barrels lends notes of sweet spices and chocolate to this beautiful wine! Amicone is the perfect compliment to first courses, grilled meats, BBQ and game.
Amicone is uniquely crafted, well-alanced and lingers on your palate like a long lost love.
