Last week we have gladly hosted Christian Roger and Francesco Pagani at our barrique cellar in Erbin, and they had the opportunity to visit our vineyards and to do a vertical tasting of our best Amarone (from 2015 to 2005 and 2006 Reserves).
The focus was set on the Amarone 2007, winner of the Regional Trophy at Decanter World Wine Awards 2011, and the Amarone 2012, recently honored with the Double Gold Medal at the San Francisco International Wine Competition. Because of this special visit, the tasting was extended to the Amarone 2015, tapped from the barrel where it matures slowly, developing wonderful and amazing aromas. 2015 is expected to be an amazing year, due to the excellent weather trend and the perfect maturation of the grapes.
