Signature red dry wine of limited production produced from dried grapes with the fermentation in the patented tank Fermentino Ca’Botta® for an extra potent body, with extra long aging in barriques, made from French oak.
The best Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG offered by Tenute Ca'Botta.
Pian di Mezzo Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG Riserva is dense and very concentrated.
It has a very dark, almost black, deep red color with slight brick tones. The aroma is rich with hints of chocolate, blackberry, and cherry, infused with spices, green pepper, leather, smoke tones, and nuts.
The taste is equally intense and rich, it is a bouquet, created from notes of dark chocolate and blackberries. The aftertaste is very pleasant with tones of black cherries and almonds. This is a perfectly balanced and unique wine.
Pian di Mezzo Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG Riserva goes perfectly with a delicious steak or a venison dish. It also goes well with aged cheeses or on its own. A true wine for meditation that fills both: mind and body.
