DESCRIPTION:

“R” is made using the traditional practice known as “ripasso”, where the young wine is re-fermented on the skins of the Amarone grapes once they have finished fermenting. Ruby red colour, nose with hints of red berries, red fruit, jam and dried fruit. Palate intense and long lasting, with a surprising balance between opulent cherry-pie and fruit notes with a vibrant acidity.
