Description

Amarone is one of the stories of the 21st century. Its history really only starts in the 1930’s. For centuries the partially dried grape wines of Veneto usually made the sweet Recioto. But in the 1930s producers started to ferment the wine to full dryness and Ama-rone was born. It was only put on the market after the Second World War and sales were small until the late 1990s when its popularity began to mushroom. When the Piona family bought the estate they had to re-plant all the vines and they have now come on stream. They named the estate Torre d’Orti, after the old watch-tower sited on the land.

TASTING NOTES

A big, chunky wine with tones of damsons and herbs a full-bodied rounded flavour and a long finish.
