The main ingredient for Italian Amarone, Ripasso and Valpolicella wines comes into its own as a varietal wine from Veneto’s Castelforte (Casalforte), who use carefully selected grapes from the hillsides east of Verona.
A sumptuous wine filled with aromas of black cherry, blackberry, subtle vanilla and sweet spice that fall in satisfying layers on the palate. Complex with exceptional balance and a quaffable finish. Try with antipasti, slow-cooked red meats and stews, or mature cheeses.
Casalforte (previously Castelforte) is Cantine Riondo Winery’s premium line representing the finest interpretation of the winemaking tradition of Veneto terroirs. Wines are elegant and full-bodied that pair perfectly with the most complex and sophisticated dishes of Italian and international cuisine.
