Product Description

Product Description

Torre del Falasco Amarone della Valpolicella wine is deep ruby in colour, this wine has aromas of plums, spice and dried fruit compote, which give way to a solid tannin structure that supports and accentuates the concentrated, dried-cherry fruit character. Long and spicy on the finish, with a bitter cherry-chocolate twist characteristic of good Amarone.

The grapes for the Amarone are grown on the steeply terraced hillside vineyards belonging to the co-op, where soils are chalky and poor.

The main feature of vintage 2009 was the early start of the growing season in comparison with previous years. The heavy rainfall that accumulated during the winter compensated for the heat and lack of rain in summer. Throughout September climatic conditions were good, with little rainfall and an accentuated difference between day and night temperatures. This undoubtedly enabled the grapes to reach maturity with excellent phenolic properties. The grape yields were normal though slightly lower than in past vintages. The wines achieved a good overall balance, with sugar concentrations within the norm.

Once picked, the grapes dried for at least four months in the Valpantena drying centre where temperature and humidity are controlled to ensure slow, even drying. During this period, the grapes lost 40% in weight. After drying, the grapes were fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks at between 18-22 degree C with maceration for 20 days. Once fermentation was complete, the wine matured in French oak barriques for 18 months before bottling. It comes with the vintage information as follows: Vintage: 2009; Grape varieties: 65% Corvina/Corvinone, 35% Rondinella; Region: Valpolicella, Veneto, Italy; Winemaker: Luca Degani; Closure: Natural Cork; Classification: DOC; Alcohol (ABV): 15%; Acidity: 5.5g/l; Residual Sugar: 7.5g/l; Wine pH: 3.5.

This is a fantastic Amarone, whilst it packs the usual Amarone "full bodied" punch, it is very smooth and not too heavy, great with a steak, with cheese or on it's own.
