Description

The seven brothers and cousins involved with ILatium Morini changed their approach in 2004 and decided to keep the best grapes to make wine themselves.

Since 2004 the torrent of accolades, including an IWC Gold for their Amarone and glowing reviews from Jancis Robinson, would suggest that they made the right decision. Now at the forefront of the new wave production of Soave, Valpolicella and Amarone, the wines combine beautiful fruit concentration with fresh, bright acidity.

The healthy fruit is hand harvested at peak ripeness and are then air dried for 100 to 120 days in small baskets in the traditional manner..

The grapes are destemmed and crushed, followed by a controlled fermentation for about 20-30 days before the wine is aged in 350-litre oak barrels for 30 months prior to bottling.

A well structured, complex wine with intensity, persistence and character. Super ripe black fruits, soft vanilla, warming spice and bags of freshness and tannin. Not one for the faint hearted.

Garnet red with an orange hue. Intense and ample ripe black fruit, sour cherries, herby and earthy, really rich and pruney, raisined, intense, lovely balance and richness.  A text-book Amarone and even with its intensely rich character, it still has elegance and finesse at its core.
