Amarone della Valpolicella - Winery Brunelli Wine

CORTE CARIANO
Verona IGT | Corvina MonoVarietal

WINE PROFILE

This unusual example of Corvina Veronese – the Veneto area’s most important grape variety, vinified on its own – is a successful expression of the family’s age-old traditional method of drying the grapes for a brief period. Corte Cariano is ideal with flavourful soups or dishes with mushrooms or truffle, fresh pasta dishes with meat sauces or richly flavoured red meat recipes.

TASTING NOTES
Corte Cariano displays a deep ruby red color and scents of berry fruits such as blackberries and redcurrants as well as cherries; these notes combine with well-integrated spicy hints deriving from its maturation in wood. Its fruit is soft and rounded on the palate, and balanced by attractive, velvety tannins. Its finish is long and extremely satisfying, without being overly intense: it merely invites one to take another delicious sip.
