Hints of coffee and chocolate on the nose with ripe crushed berry, bitter cherry and sweet plummy fruit on the palate - backed by notes of bitter chocolate. Rich and warming yet fresh and well-balanced, with supple tannins and a rich texture.

This long established Veronese family company, headed by Giorgio Montresor, is producing wines which increasingly rival the offerings of the region's more fashionable names. The estate wines, from 100 ha of vineyards in Valpolicella and Garda, offer remarkable value for money, particularly the Capitel della Crosara vineyard near Negrar which produces fine, richly-flavoured Ripasso and a generous, classically-styled Amarone with great concentration and texture.

Made from a blend of Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara grapes cultivated in Montresor's vineyards in the Valpolicella Classico zone (North-West of Verona). The grapes are hand harvested at the end of October.

The late harvested grapes are dried out for four months (until Feb of following year) and then crushed. The must is fermented in stainless steel for four months. The wine is aged in Slavonian oak casks and small French barrique for 3 years. Finally it is bottled and it rests for 6 months in bottle before release.

Excellent with red meats, game or hard cheeses, especially Parmesan.
