This Amarone is only produced in the best years and then only in tiny quantities from Corvina (70%), Rondinella (25%) and Molinara (5%). It's a dry,warm, full-bodied wine whose flavours and scents are accentuated by its very long ageing and the intensity produced from the dry grapes. It is an ideal wine for roasts, game but is probably at its best with mature cheeses.
Cantine Lenotti is a family run firm run by the parents - Giancarlo (oenologist, production manager and facilities supervisor), and his wife Marina (sales manager for the home market), - and their son Claudio (export manager). Over the years they have aimed to improve the quality of their grapes and their wines with constant investment, experimentation and adherence to the very best vinification procedures. The Cantine is based in Bardolino and they boldly boast that they have the last lake facing vineyard still producing wine in that town.
