Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG “Pietro Dal Cero” 2015 – Cà dei Frati

Full Body Red

This wine is a deep ruby red colour with intense aromas of cherries, chocolate and sweet spices on the nose. As the wine breathes, balsamic notes emerge to reveal aniseed and wild mint aromas. This wine has great body and acidity, remarkable mineral elegance and prominent yet supple tannins. The finish is long and rounded with delicate hints of coffee and sweet tobacco.

About this wine

The grapes to produce the Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG “Pietro Dal Cero” Cà dei Frati were hand harvested and selected in the vineyards.Then were left to dry in crates for four months before maceration and vinification in stainless-steel tanks with prolonged contact with the skins. The wine then underwent malolactic fermentation and was left to mature in 100% new American barriques for 24 months, followed by a further two years in the bottle. The grapes are grown in the Luxinum vineyard in Pian di Castagnè, above the village of Marcellise, between the communes of Mezzane and San Martino Buon’Albergo. This is the highest point of the Marcellise valley at an altitude of 300 meters above sea level. The vineyard is located on the eroded ridge that climbs towards San Rocco di Piegara.The unique microclimate gives the ideal growing conditions for the black grape varieties of the Valpolicella. At 20-30 metres from the surface of the soil there are layers of white clay and chips, which retain moisture and provide a source of water for the vines during periods of severe drought. The vines are planted using the Guyot training system and yields are seven tonnes per hectare.
The Dal Cero family has transformed their Cà dei Frati property, situated on the southern shores of Lake Garda, into a model Italian estate over the past two decades. Back in 1987, they had 12 hectares of vineyard but now, following the purchase of a large chunk of prime vineyard in 2008, they have over 160 hectares. This increase in quantity has been matched by an increase in quality and today they remain the best producer in Lugana.
