'Amarone is the king of Veronese wines, combining power and softness that evolves to a Port-like richness with grandeur and depth from 10+ years in the cellar. Released only in the best vintages, Monte Sant’Urbano is a single vineyard blend of 70% Corvina, 25% Rondinella and 5% Corvinone. Select bunches are hand-picked in the last two weeks of September and dried for 110-120 days, losing over 40% of their initial weight. In January, the grapes are de-stemmed and soft-pressed, and both alcoholic and malolactic fermentation is carried out in large oak. The wine is aged for 3 years in a combination of tonneaux and Slovenian oak barrels, followed by 1 year in the bottle. Although Amarone is a powerful and concentrated wine, the Speri style is more medium-bodied, highlighting elegance and finesse. The bouquet is intense with cherries, spice, minerals and jammy notes, the palate rich, concentrated and structured with flavours that linger on and on'.
