Le Ragose 2006 Amarone Della Valpolicella

Description

Le Ragose Amarone is produced from estate vineyards sitting about 1,200 feet in elevation. The vineyards are ideally situated with a southwest exposure and soils of clay and magnesium, calcium and iron based gravel. Vines average 30-60 years old.

Winemaker Notes

Following harvest the grapes are laid out in single layers in small wooden boxes where they will slowly dry until January or February. Once dry, the raisined grapes are fermented for up to 30 days with indigenous yeasts in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks where they will stay for a period of 12 months followed by 4-5 years in large Slavonian oak casks.

Tasting Notes

Le Ragose Amarone shows dense, ripe and lush berries with a hint of dark chocolate. This is a wine of power and elegance, harmonic and enticing. The finish is long and satisfying.

Food Pairing

Excellent with wild game birds, wild goat, risotto all’Amarone, Gorgonzola cheese, dark chocolate desserts, cheesecakes, hazelnut and almond desserts.
