Amarone Corte Vaona Novaia
This Amarone is made with corvina, corvinone and rondinella grapes picked during the last ten days of September from the Novaia vineyards, located at 250-300 meters above sea level in Marano di Valpolicella (Verona). Grapes undergo a natural over-ripening in a traditional hilly cellar (400 meters above sea level) for about 4 months. The wine ages for 24 months in barrique and 12 months in bottle. Color is deep garnet red. It shows intense perfume with typical hints of ripe red fruit and jam, together with the typical notes given by wilting, characteristics hints of spices, coffee, bitter chocolate, tobacco and notes of goudron with ageing. It has a good alcoholic taste with high extract, generous, velvety, flavoursome and persistent body with hints of almond, cherry jam, spices and tobacco. Best with great dishes based on game, grilled, roasted or braised meat, roast lamb or goat, slightly fat, tasty and mature cheese. Excellent at the end of a meal. It is perfect to be enjoyed alone in front of a fireplace as a "meditation wine", with a good book or in pleasant company. The unusual combination with sweet-and-sour flavours, the traditional dishes of Middle-East, Asian and Latin-American cuisine is never disappointing.
Novaia is located in one of the most suggestive and luxurious areas of Alta Valpolicella, on the top of a gentle and sunny hill and on the left of the Marano Valley. At Novaia they adopt century-old traditions passed down over the years: in 1908 The Modern Industrial Fair of the city of Verona awarded Paolo Vaona the Grand Prix and Gold Medal Diploma for the wines he produced. Today Cesare and Gianpaolo Vaona, with their sons, perpetuate his ancient tradition. The winery is run according to modern and yet ancient and traditional winemaking techniques, vineyards have been replanted to valoryze the tipical varieties and and many studies concerning drying grapes have been made.
