The children Igino, Gian Franco and Anna Maria (third generation) dedicated this outstanding red wine - Pietro Dal Cero Amarone della Valpolicella from Cà dei Frati - to their father Pietro.
In the glass an intense ruby red shines with purple reflections. The expressive bouquet offers a wonderful, intense variety of aromas - starting with ripe sour cherries, which combine beautifully with chocolaty and spicy notes, to floral tones of roses and wild stone quendel, to balsamic notes.
On the palate this red wine presents a powerful yet velvety texture with pleasant aromas of freshly ground coffee and soft tobacco. The dense tannins are accompanied by wonderful fruitiness and a pleasant acidity structure. The finale is of an unforgettable length.
