Description

A thousand years of history, one hundred and twenty hectares of property – forty-seven of which are planted with vines – distributed in three different areas of Verona: Valpolicella Classica, Valpantena and Eastern Valpolicella. A historic family, the Cesari, that has owned the villa and the surrounding land since 1928. Amarone Case Vecie borrows its name from the homonymous vineyard located in Grezzana – Valpantena. An extraordinary plot of land planted with vines where altitude and exposition enable the grapes to undergo a slow and constant ripening, even during the hardest years. The late harvesting period enables the grapes to dry in a colder period of the year, undergoing a slower and longer drying process. Amarone Case Vecie is a wine that is designed to enhance the natural characteristics of a high altitude climate: a true Amarone “Vigne Alte” – a high-hill Amarone.

TASTING NOTES
Deep ruby. Very ripe, almost roasted nose of dried cranberry, kirsch, brown spices, figs macerated in sugar syrup and botanical herbs. Then fresher and suave, with clean and precise flavours of cinnamon, pepper, tobacco and potpourri. Finishes long with young, chewy but polished tannins.

FOOD PAIRING

Red meats, in the form of stracotto, braised beef and all slow-cooked dishes find their ideal contrast in Amarone with its high alcohol content and pliant tannins. Another pairing worth trying is with donkey meat stew or pastissada de caval !
