Tedeschi Amarone della Valpolicella
Amarone is made using an ancient method of air-drying grapes. The wines are intense, rich and Port-like, but dry. This has floral lift, fig, chocolate, licorice and honey. Superb with roasted meats like lamb, or more exotic dishes such as beef vindaloo.
The name “Marne 180” recalls the type of soil on which our vineyards were planted (marl) and their exposure from south-west to south-east expressed in degrees (180). This wine is made from grapes harvested in various vineyards located on the hills of Valpolicella. The different origin of the different grape varieties is important in order to obtain a well balanced wine, with a good structure that only some single areas of Valpolicella can give.
