An important Amarone with extraordinary power and complexity: a classic in the Italian winemaking portfolio.
This is the icon wine of the historic Serego Alighieri estate and comes from the eponymous vineyard, the source it seems of the very name Amarone itself.Its elegant personality is enhanced by the use of the Serego Alighieri clone of the Molinara grape and by ageing in cherry-wood casks, as family tradition dictates.
Grape varieties: Corvina, Rondinella, Molinara (Serego Alighieri clone).
