REMO FARINA AMARONE
A special reserve produced in only 2500 bottles (each bottle has its own number) in a extraordinary year as for climatic conditions as it was the 2007 vintage, which can be called a “historic” vintage.
The carefully selected grapes all come from a single vineyard located in a hilly area in Mazzano di Negrar, in the heart of Valpolicella Classica region, at an altitude of 400 m a.s.l. The area is particularly favorable and the yield of grapes per hectar is lower than average (about 30 quintals per hectar).
The grapes which are harvested, exclusively by hand, are all local grapes of Valpolicella Classica (Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara); they are left to dry for about 3 months at a controlled temperature of 18° C and 70% humidity before being pressed and vinified. Fermentation is very long and slow, and lasts for about 40 days at a temperature of about 18° C.
The wine is then aged in oak barrels: 50% in Slavonian oak casks of 5 hl for 4 years and the remaining 50% in French oak barriques for 2 years. At the end everything is blended in stainless steel tanks and refined for 2 years before being sold.
This wine is red garnet with orange edges in the glass with an intense bouquet given from a mix of fruit (sour cherries, plums), spices (cinnamon, ginger) and tobacco. On the palate it is full bodied, complex, harmonious, well-balanced and enveloping. Excellent accompaniment to meats and cheeses, or just sipped after dinner in good company.
