Wine Maker Notes
Located in the Illasi Valley of the Valpolicella region, Cesari’s Bosan vineyard is a densely planted vineyard featuring alluvial, tuffaceous soil with a clayey consistency. The grapes for this wine are dried for three to four months in “fruittai,” drying facilities. The wine undergoes maceration on the skins and is then racked off its lees and placed in stainless steel vats to undergo malolactic fermentation. Cesari Bosan Amarone is aged for three years in Slavonian oak barrels and French barriques and tonneaux and is further matured in bottle for 12 to 15 months. Aromas of cherries are accented by hints of spices, cocoa, and vanilla. This elegant wine complements hearty dishes like game, grilled red meats, and stews.
