Astoria Amarone della Valpolicella is a distinguished Italian wine renowned for its rich, full-bodied character. Crafted in the esteemed Valpolicella region, it boasts intense flavours of ripe dark fruits, complemented by hints of chocolate, spices, and a velvety texture.

This wine embodies craftsmanship and tradition, undergoing a meticulous appassimento process where the grapes are dried to concentrate flavours, resulting in a luxurious and complex palate.

Its opulent profile makes it perfect for special occasions or savouring leisurely moments. Astoria Amarone della Valpolicella embodies elegance and depth, offering a remarkable sensory journey with every sip.

 

 

This wine is typically full in body with a very nice concentrated fruity profile. I like the easy approach and well-balanced acidity. The blend used by Astoria in this Amarone is a classic, but at the same time, has its peculiar winemaker signature.

Tasting

Typical aromas of ripe fruit, fruit preserve and cherry are immediately perceived on first olfactory examination. Particularly striking is the incredibly long length that lingers on the palate, when the wine displays all its strength through a warm and elegant body.

Food pairing

It is an excellent partner to red meat, boiled meat, flavoursome risottos and hard cheeses.
