No other Italian wine delivers the power and hedonistic pleasure of a weighty Amarone, and, with two Golds, La Collina dei Ciliegi is surely one of the finest. From a highly lauded cellar, this is a richly textured, complex, cherry rich red.
"Best Amarone around. Delicious, perfect example of how great an Amarone can be. Worth every penny!"
Online Review for 2008 UK
Big, bold and beautifully crafted, this is a sumptuous Amarone. Over the years its intense, complex flavours have won the cellar an extraordinary number of Trophies and Golds – this 2011 has added another two from international competitions. That 24 carat track record is a testament to the labour of love production of Stefano Falla and a cellar that is credited with inventing this dry version of Recioto Amarone in 1936. Hand picked and hand selected grapes are left to dry for four months, during which time they lose at least 40% of their weight. The grapes are pressed and macerated for 30 days before the rich, fruity liquid is carefully, slowly fermented prior to two years in oak. Decant an hour before serving with game or a rich casserole.
