Rocca Sveva Valpolicella Amarone DOCG Riserva

“Rocca Sveva Amarone is dark and inky in color. Its palate is full of lovely ripe, juicy red fruit over a background of light balsamic… floral notes upon entry followed by a dry, very elegant progression on the palate.” Filippo Pedron, Winemaker Rocca Sveva Estate

Veneto, Italy
Valpolicella DOCG
70% Corvina, 25% Rondinella, 5% Molinara
The hand-picked clusters are set to dry on “drying racks” for at least three months in special temperature and humidity-controlled lofts, losing 50% to 60% of their water content by the time they undergo fermentation. The must ferments at low temperatures (50°F) for some 25-30 days. When the alcohol reaches two-thirds of its final level, the wine is put into stainless steel at 68°F to finish fermentation.
The wine is matured in oak casks for a minimum of 24 months, followed by an additional twelve months of rest in the bottle.
Rich ruby with garnet highlights.
Complex and multi-layered, with aromas of fresh picked cherries, wild red berries, and dried fruit.
Notable depth and breadth, well-structured, full tannins, and a delicious long-lingering finish.
serving suggestions
In Italy, Amarone is often referred to as a “Vino da Meditazione”, a meditation wine, best enjoyed by itself after a meal. However, this wine is an excellent match to duck breast or hearty game such as venison or pheasant.
