Product descriptionProduct description
Amarone is a gentle giant made using the passito method and coming from Villa Canestrari, an artisan winery that has been working 20ha of land in Illasi Valley for four generations.
The grapes are dried after picking, concentrating the flavours and resulting in a big and dense, off-dry red wine with complex, jammy aromas of cooked plums and red fruit, earthy aromas reminiscent of mushrooms and generous yet polished tannins. A blend of Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara.
This Amarone has been immersed for another 16 months in the sea on a depth of ±20 meters in the in the Croatian side of the Adriatic sea.
Each bottle is unique and a creation of the sea and nature. The product picture is an example and the delivered bottle can differ in the appearance to the product photo.
The Coral Wine Croatia project exists for eight years and produces ±15 000 bottles per year. It's the first and only underwater wine cellar to age wine from different countries in the EU.
The constant temperature, the water pressure and the lack of oxygen influence the wine aromas and its structure. Ageing in the sea accelerates the ageing of the wine, particularly softening it's tannins and giving it rounded, complex aromas, different than when aged in the conventional wine cellar.
Wines aged in the sea, do not taste like sea and are not salty. ;)
