Milamore is an exciting and innovative wine, vinified in the true 'Amarone' style. This new world expression of a traditional Italian wine is produced using the old apassimento technique, where our best grapes are dried after harvest to increase their concentration. The result is a smooth and silky wine, full of raisiny aromas, velvety tannins and exquisite flavours. This blend was crafted under the technical direction of Alberto Antonini, one of the most prestigious winemakers in the world.
Tasting Notes: Deep and intense ruby red with purple shades coloring, this wine has plenty to offer. Its complex aroma includes violet, honey, fig, cherry and ripe plum which combine with spicy notes of black pepper and aromatic herbs. After a few minutes, the wine shows hints of vanilla and leather provided by the French oak. It's got a creamy texture with sweet hard tannins. Persistent lengthy finish.
Pairings: red meat, foigrass, and cheese boards. Also a perfect match for chocolate and cakes with nuts like walnut and hazelnut.
Ageing: Drinks well now and up to 8 years old.
