AMANDORLATO Veneto Rosso Passito IGT
Intense ruby red color with garnet reflections.

OUR SOMMELIER SAYS
“This Amandorlato was a real discovery to me, testifying to the fact that we never stop learning in the world of wine.
This oenological rarity (because of its rarity is an absolutely UNIQUE wine in the world) we owe to the Galtarossa family and to the whole Montecariano company, who, with passion and oenological expertise that distinguishes them, wanted to take up and carry on this challenge.
The strength of this wine is the complete and absolute harmony that the oenologist is able to reach in a precise instant and in the only one: when he perceives to have found the meeting point between the sweet taste of the fruits and the taste of the almond. The achievement of this moment must be carefully taken away after a long and close monitoring in the cellar the fermentation phase, because the time window is really very short.
The result is a great wine, which is persuasive both on the nose and in the mouth.
Great meditation wine, maybe even with a good cigar for lovers of the genre or pairing with quality chocolate.
Special note: this wine is produced only in the years that allow it and in limited quantities, obviously depending on the individual vintages.
Forbidden to miss it. “
