Tasting Notes

Just 1840 bottles produced of this wine, and a couple of hundred magnums, this particular Amarone is from the Purano vineyard, a very special site that Nicola shares with Allegrini. Planted on limestone, at a higher elevation than his own vineyards with ancient tree-like vines, although this wine is mostly from vines around 35 years. You get the most brilliant clarity and depth in the wine thanks to these soils. As Robin says, a very Bepe style wine! Aged for 5 years in oak, and a further year in bottle pre-release, unhurried, so as to allow optimal complexity and balance. 

More Info

Monte Santoccio's fabulous new releases have coincided with some brilliant press for all of the wines. They are at a new level, with greater clarity, and layers of fruit, although still with their trademark finesse and elegance; a reflection of Nicola Ferrari's 13 years making wine with the late, legend of Amarone and Valpolicella, Giuseppe Quintarelli.The cellar was built a few years ago, and this has helped, along with a portion of grapes that come from the ancient vineyard they rent in Purano, a hamlet, even higher than where they are, atop Fumane.

FROM THE PRESS

“This is one of the most sophisticated and pliant Amarones I have ever tasted. It is generous, welcoming and deeply luxurious and yet there is the tell-tale Santoccio freshness on the finish, too. Just starting out on a very long journey, this is one of the standout wines of the year. 19+/20 ”
