A celebration of the Montresor family's Amarone heritage, and 100 years since the wine was first released in its distincive frosted bottle. This anniversary bottling has spent nearly a decade in old Slavonian oak - an elegant and refined Amarone, nicely developed but still with plenty of life.
Montresor believe 2011 to be one of their top 10 Amarone vintages, comparable in quality to those of 1988 and 1997 - with good acidity levels and concentration of sugars. A blend of Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara - the wine was aged for almost 10 years in a 55hl Slavonian Oak barrel (over 20 years old).
The subtle aromas are quite shy to start, but open in the glass to give complex dried fruit characters with brown spice, liquorice and dried flowers. Ripe fruit with a gentle sweetness is nicely balanced by fresh acidity and bitter cherry grip leading to a velvety, ethereal finish. Echoes of fine old Tawny Port or mature Barolo, a real old charmer.
Great to sip and savour, or pair with a cheese board including classics such as Parmigiano Reggiano and Stilton. We recommend you decant first to allow the wine to open up.
