La Giuva, Amarone della Valpolicella 2016 Christmas Wine Gift

Product Description
  • With a complex and ethereal nose, this Amarone has aromatic notes of cherries, blueberries and chocolate, combined with hints of sweet spice. Smooth and powerful, the palate is remarkably fresh and finishes with ripe fruit.
  • The estate was founded by Alberto Malesani, famous in Italy as a former manager of both Fiorentina and Parma.
  • The balance, concentration and aromatic intensity marks the wines out from the crowd in Valpolicella, and makes La Giuva one of the region’s rising stars.
  • The grapes for the Amarone were dried for 80 days before being crushed and fermented in stainless-steel tanks for 15 days, at a controlled temperature of 23°C. Malolactic fermentation took place before the wine was aged in new oak barrels for 24 months.
  • La Giuva's estate covers 10 hectares in a cool site in the Val Squaranto, a small valley between the Valpantena and the valley of Mezzane. The vineyards are planted on the top of the hill, at an altitude of 350-400 metres above sea level, and are picked later than most sites in the hills east of Verona.
