      Tasting Notes
      Cantine Pra Amarone Della Valpolicella DOCG 2012, 75cl

      Graziano Prà has been part of the company since the early 80s but it was his father and grandfather who sealed his fate as winemaker.
      Regions such as Monte Grande and Monte Bisson in Soave and Morandina in Valpolicella have risen to international fame thanks to him; small esteemed Crus located in strong viticulture areas.

      The principles that have shaped his story are quintessence and respect for the land. Purity is a key word to describe Graziano wines. He is still in charge of winemaking decisions and, in the wine cellar, he prefers the exaltation of the fruit. From the beginning, his production choice to only use local vine varieties reflects Graziano’s strong belief in the potential quality of local grapes and for the enhancement of the territory.

      After searching for the right site, Graziano Pra began the new millennium by fulfilling his long term ambition and purchasing a 13 hectare vineyard near Mezzane in eastern Valpolicella. At 450m altitude, the steep glacial slopes of poor, rocky yellow marl soil produce meagre crops and the cool nights ensure a long ripening period. No chemical treatments are used. The grapes (Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Oseletta) are dried in a fruttaio (drying room) for 2 months. Grapes are macerated and fermented for 15 days in stainless steel vats.

      The wine has a ruby red colour. The aromas are intense and complex. On the palate cherries, plums mixed with bitter cocoa and liquorice, flavoursome and smooth structure balanced with tannins and freshness thanks to the altitude of vineyard and the high chalk composition in the marl soil.

      Power combined with elegance, as suggested by the horse breed T.P.R on the label.

      Perfect with wild game, mature cheese or simply a wine to contemplate and take your time over.
