Made from Nebbiolo grapes grown on vineyards in Barbaresco, Neive, Treiso and Alba. Fermentations with lenghty stays on the skins followed by ageing in oak casks produce an intensely red wine with slight hints of garnet, a complex nose of ripe red fruit and spicy overtones, and a warm, mouth-filling flavour with soft tannins, greta elegance and an excellent finish.

During the winter, Valpolicella wine ( made from Corvina and Rondinella grapes) is passed over the skins remaining from the production of Amarone using the traditional "Ripasso" technique, which increases the alchool, body and perfume of cherries, red fruits and spices. The ideal match for roast and grilled red meats, stews and mature cheeses.
Castelforte Amarone is made from dried Corvina and Rondinella grapes. A long, slow fermentation and minimum 18 months ageing in large oak give this dry, full-bodied red wine a deep garnet red colour, a complex bouquet of cinnamon, cherry jam and walnut and a palate of ripe black cherry fruit with notes of vanilla and coffee on the finish. It pairs perfectly with rich pasta dishes, game and grilled or stewed red meats as well as mature cheeses.
