About the Wine  

The world loves Amarone, and some of the most important wine critics in the world have also stated their admiration for this wine. Robert Parker once said: “One wine that shines particularly bright in the Veneto is the mighty Amarone, where it is king”.

This red blend from the Veneto region is one of the most unique and sour after wine styles in the entire world. The process to produce this wine is complicated and delicate, which makes it a wine of impressive reputation. The grapes are dehydrated after being harvested, to later be fermented, and this is reflected in powerful, deep, and luscious wines! And just like James Suckling stated: "Amarone is a wine to drink with a lot of contemplation." 

Just a little over 20 miles from Verona is located Progetti Agricoli, a company founded in 2015 by experts and wine lovers. Progetti Agricoli is a cooperation of different partners, each one located in some of the most important wine-growing regions of Italy, and within each region, they are creating unique and tailor-made wines. Progetti Agricoli only partners with experts in the wine industry, from the vineyard, winemaking, and even marketing, designs, and sales.

Aging: 2 years in oak barrels.

Tasting NotesCorvina, Rondinella, Corvinone. Complex and intense scent of cherries, intertwined with the freshness of undergrowth smells. Bouquet of cinnamon, cherry jam, and a palate of ripe black cherry fruit. This wine pairs lovely with game, roasted or braised red meats, and mature cheeses.
