Castelforte Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico 2014 (1x 75cl)

Established in 2008, Collis Riondo (the parent company of Castelforte) is one of the largest and most important wine producers in Veneto. They are the undisputed leader of viticulture in the Veneto region with over 6,000 hectares of vineyards that are managed daily by more than 2.400 associated farmers. The vineyards cover the main production zones, appellations and grape varieties of the region: Prosecco, Soave, Valpolicella, Ripasso, Amarone, Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, Garganega and Corvina being the most renowned among local and international consumers. The name “Castelforte” is a fusion of the Italian words for castle and fort in honour of the castle and fortified walled town of Soave.

The vineyards are meticulously taken care of every day by several farmers. Castelforte Amarone is made from dried Corvina and Rondinella grapes. 

A long, slow fermentation and minimum 18 month aging in large oak give this dry, full-bodied red wine a deep garnet red color, a complex bouquet of cinnamon, cherry jam and walnut and a palate of ripe black cherry fruit with notes of vanilla and coffee on the finish. It pairs perfectly with rich pasta dishes, game and grilled or stewed red meats as well as mature cheeses
