Made from dried grapes, you'll be bowled over by the concentration of this Amarone.

Deep red and violet in colour, this looks as big as it tastes. A powerful Amarone wine on the nose and palate with flavours of plums, blackberries and cherry syrup with a spicy overtone too. It’s a dry wine with firm, rich tannins and it needs to be savoured slowly to appreciate the multi-faceted nature of this wine. A perfect partner to game and other rich, full-flavoured dishes.

Made from 70% Corvina and 30% Rondinella that are harvested and left in small wooden crates for up to six months to concentrate the sugars and aromatics. The grapes are then pressed and fermented in steel vats at a controlled temperature. The wine is then aged in oak barrels for three to four years. During this time, the wine is regularly tasted from each individual barrel to understand the evolution of the wine and to decide on the final blend. The wine can be cellared for 10-15 years after the vintage.

A perfectly harmonious taste, soft, velvety tannins, and a fruity, spicy aftertaste that is stupendously mellow‘ (2011 vintage)

Located in the Soave, Valpolicella and Amarone region of Verona, Italy, Fasoli Gino was founded back in 1925 by Amadio Fasoli. It was then a fruit and vegetable farm that made some wine for local Veronese bars. Fasoli Gino turned to organic viticulture in 1980 and since 1984 all of their land has been farmed organically. Since 2006 the family have also been practising Demeter-certified biodynamics. The business is currently headed by Matteo Fasoli, the third generation to hold the reins here. They continue to apply know-how passed down over generations alongside modern techniques to ensure we produce consistently high-quality wines. Today they use this organic-biodynamic approach as it restores the balance that already exists in nature. By reinforcing the plants and revitalising the soils it encourages the biodiversity the vines need. The Fasoli family are committed to treating their land with the utmost care to ensure its health for future generations. The nature of the land (partly clay and partly a mix of stones and sand), and the favourable microclimate (the wide and sunny valley, protected from the north by the Lessini mountains) make the area particularly suitable for vine growing. Currently the estate cultivates 14 hectares of vineyards divided into seven parts, with the type of land varying from one plot to another. Some of their wines are named after plots they come from, such as Orgno and Calle. The type of land in each plot has helped determine which varieties should be planted. In the clay soil there are 30–40-year-old Garganega vines, traditionally used for Soave wine. Where the soil is stony and sandy, Chardonnay, Merlot and Pinot Noir have been planted. This estate is known for its fantastic organic Soave, Valpolicella, Merlot and Amarone wines.

  1. This one’s a bit of a bigun!

    With that much alcohol I’d recommend chilling it slightly before you pour it, that way you can really see it open up in the glass. Loads of rich dark fruit but equally soft and smooth at the same time.
