Wine Profile
Wine Profile / Tasting Notes
Alteo is a full-bodied, elegant wine with a warm, inviting bouquet of dried fruit, black pepper, coffee, liquorice and vanilla. On the palate is soft, velvety, and substantial. The elegance, slight sweetness and volume are the surprising features of this wine. The finish is long with an aftertaste of liquorice
Vineyard Notes
Vineyard location: Valpolicella. Soil type: Morainic hills. Training system: short Pergola Veronese.
Production Notes
6,000 bottles produced. Hand harvested in early fall. Only the best bunches are chosen for “Alteo” which are then left to dry in the "appassimento" loft for more than 4 months before the winemaking process begins. The grapes are fermented in stainless steel tanks and then left to mature in barriques for up to three years. Once bottled, the wine is left to settle for another year before being released onto the market.
Winemaker Notes
“The Alteo 2013 has aged extremely well. It has perfectly preserved the part of the bouquet that it had originally before bottling. Spice and aromas are very present, as is freshness. The spiciness dominates over all the other aromas. In the mouth it reflects our type of wines: it enters with a good body, is decidedly aromatic, full, and ends with very lively tannins and saltiness. The finish is long and persistent. On the palate, and almost in the throat, you can perceive something peppery. Clearly the alcohol content is high. However, the power of the body is balanced by the strong vinosity that makes it easy to drink“.
Food & Wine Pairing
Pairs well with sweet-and-sour dishes, barbequed meats, game and very mature cheese. Also great with dark chocolate deserts.
More Information
Amarone is known across the globe as the wine of excellence from the Verona region. Since the 1990s, Alteo has been our flagship wine. Its elegance and power express our philosophy: to achieve a subtle balance between muscly structure and fine softness.
