DOWNLOAD TECHNICAL SHEET

Fieramonte tells the story of Valpolicella and its most important traditions, underpinned by a combination of values firmly based on an upper hillside vineyard with slopes that face south, and on the stubbornness of man who has always reaped the best from those lands. Giovanni Allegrini, the Company’s founder and father of Walter, Marilisa and Franco, was proud of it, precisely for its upper hillside location and its fortunate exposure to the east, where the ripening of the grapes is very balanced. As he loved to say: the morning sun, driving away the shadows of the night, awakens nature and gently caresses the bunches.

Tasting notes

Particularly intense and compact ruby red in colour, this Amarone opens on the nose with a dominant, broad and toasted scent of coffee and tobacco. On the palate, it impresses with its imposing structure. The tannins are centre stage but not aggressive on the palate, accompanied by a fresh and vital acidity that lengthens and streamlines the mouthfeel.
