ABOUT THE WINE
In 1958 Domenico Fraccaroli began producing wines on a small piece of paradise in Friuli-Venezia-Giulia, producing wines from local varieties. In 2002, his son, Tiziano Fraccaroli, purchased an estate in Verona, in the town of Lavagno, the Grotta del Ninfeo, allowing the family to expand their range and produce the wines of Valpolicella. The third generation, Domenico and Luca, and now in charge of the estate, continuing their family tradition.

TASTING NOTES
Aged for 30 months in French oak barriques and 18 months in bottle before release. Intense aromas of ripe red fruit, framed by oak-spice and vanilla; the palate is full-bodied, rich and mellow, in classic Amarone style, beautifully balanced and expressive. The finish is long and engaging, with spice and mulled-fruit character.

FOOD PAIRING
Ideal with beef, game and other red meats. The power and structure of Amarone allows it to pair well with hard cheeses as well.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
Amarone is produced by allowing the harvested grapes to dry out in specially-designed rooms before fermentation. The result is extremely low yields of intensely flavoursome, full-bodied wines with wonderful texture and extraordinary complexity.
