Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Succulent black and red fruits rest on a foundation of truffles, espresso beans, licorice, Christmas cake, crushed flowers, grilled herbs, and underbrush in this frankly delicious Amarone. Chewy tannins grip the palate as this harmonious wine crosses the palate, building to a lingering crescendo. With a velvety mouth-feel and a nicely acidic finish, this blend of 70% Corvina, 20% Rondinella and the remainder Croatina, the single-vineyard Ambrosan derives from a southwest-facing, sloping vineyard located in San Pietro in Cariano. Nicolis’ approach includes placing harvested grapes in small cases during the three-month drying period; a long, slow fermentation period at low temperatures; the use of Croatina grapes, which take the place of Molinara, the usual third contributor to the blend; and aging in medium-sized Slavonian oak casks.
