Review
95 Points Wine Spectator: Special Designation: Highly Recommended Issue: Jun 30, 2007 Castellani Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Cinque Stelle 2003 Tight on the nose, offering just a hint of the clean black fruit and coffee-stained oak character that forms a solid bead on the palate. Full-bodied, with lots of tightly packed tannins that carry the crushed fruit flavors through the long, long finish. Very intense--almost closed--but super-clean and fine. A beauty. Best after 2008. 1,200 cases made. JC Country: Italy Region: Veneto

Wine maker notes
Amarone Cinque Stelle is an excellent masterpiece. This is the best result that its possible to obtain from a careful selection of the grapes Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Molinara after a drying process for about 3-4 months. Thanks to this process we obtain a wine with an amazing concentration of sugars, tannins and extracts. After that, grapes undergoes a soft pressing process and a slow fermentation for over 40 days at controlled temperature with skins. Aging in wood barrels: 60% Slavonian oak barrels of 5000 litres and 40% in French barriques for about 3 years. Bottle fining for about one year.

Technical notes
Alcohol: 16% Vol

Food pairing
Its perfect with roasts, game, grilled meat and seasoned cheeses. Enjoy this fantastic wine with friends after dinner. Service temperature: 18 C
