TASTING NOTES

Tradition and family: these are the two key words that sum up the vision of the Monte Santoccio winery. It is a small family-run business which, with its four hectares of vineyards, is located in the heart of the classic area of Valpolicella, more precisely in Fumane. The area, nestled between Lake Garda and the Lessinia mountains, has a long tradition of red wines, and is famous above all for the dried (passito) red grape wine, Recioto. We immediately notice that the philosophy of the company, managed with passion and rigour by Nicola Ferrari with the help of his wife Laura, is to produce quality wines based on tradition. Having then worked for the Giuseppe Quintarelli winery, one of the most prestigious companies in the classic area, added a great deal of experience. The grapes for this Amarone are harvested and selected exclusively by hand, then dried until mid-January in traditional drying larders here in Valpolicella: Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Molinara. Fermentation is carried out in two separate steps: at the beginning there is an initial cold maceration, lasting 20 days, followed by the actual alcoholic fermentation for the next 30 days. Ageing is then carried out in 500-litre French and American oak tonneaux for about 30 months. In the glass this wine develops an intense ruby red with hints of garnet. On the nose, the aromas explode with hints of red and black berry fruits, fresh and jammy, with a final pleasantly persistent balsamic note. In the mouth it is powerful but elegant, with all-around softness and length, with a perceptible aromatic finish combined with the spiciness of the wood. Ideal paired with a main course of red meat, especially if slow cooked, this will be your go-to Sunday wine to enjoy with family or friends. Read more Read less
