The illustrious Montresor family moved from France to Italy at the start of the 19th Century, and settled in the Veneto region near Lake Garda. In 1892 Cantina Giacomo Montresor was established in Verona, and remains family-owned to this day.
Giorgio Montresor produces a portfolio of wines which increasingly rival the offerings of the region’s more fashionable names – harnessing modern technology to craft the best wines from each site, across their 100ha of vineyard, in Valpolicella and Garda.
This incredible Amarone wine (which translates as ‘Bitter’) has hints of coffee and chocolate on the nose with ripe crushed berry, bitter cherry and sweet plummy fruit on the palate – backed by notes of bitter chocolate.
Rich and warming yet fresh and well-balanced, with supple tannins and a rich texture.
Grape varieties – Corvina 70%, Rondinella 20%, Molinara 10%.
