Amarone della Valpolicella - Winery Brunelli Wine

CARIANUM
Verona IGT | Garganega Late Harvest

WINE PROFILE

Our signature white wine. Produced since 1990 in small quantities from late-harvested Garganega grapes. The selection takes place in late Fall to favour the development of the noble rot and a greater concentration of aromas: hints of tropical fruit and citrus, notes of jasmine and vanilla, continuing with persistent mineral sensations of flint. It is the ideal match to tasty or baked fish dishes, risotto with asparagus or strong cheeses. Suitable for the ageing.

TASTING NOTES
On the nose, this deep straw yellow-colored wine displays tropical aromas as well as hints of apricots and fresh, sweet aromatic herbs such as sage. These notes are set off by floral scents of acacia blossoms and jasmine. One can also pick out nuances of ripe white grapes, crab apples and vanilla. On the palate it is rounded, but with an appealing balancing freshness and savory quality. The finish is very long. This is a very well-structured white that shows at its best after one or two years’ bottle-aging.
SERVING SUGGESTIONS
Carianum is delicious as an accompaniment for richly flavored fish dishes, such as crayfish and fresh or smoked salmon. It is also splendid with white meats baked in tinfoil. Serve at 13°C (55°F).
