2018 Amarone Celeste, Cantina CàMatta, Veneto

2018 Amarone Celeste, Cantina CàMatta, Veneto

Specially selected bunches of a blend of Made up of a blend of 70% Corvina, 20% Corvinone, and 10% Rondinella are selected and placed in 7kg crates for 3 months to dry out in the sun, with this concentration of the sugars contributing to a weight loss of 40%. The grapes are then pressed and fermented. This is the 1st vintage of this Amarone, and Alessandro should be very proud of what he’s achieved. Classic Amarone notes of dried figs, cranberries and raisins are supported by cinnamon, clove and incense spice as well as more savoury notes of dark chocolate and leather. This wine is so well balanced and with only 16% alcohol (far lower than many Amarones), it shows restraint and focus. The tannins are sweet and well knit and the acidity is fresh and searing.
