It is the first time ever Latium Morini Amarone is sold in Singapore market. More than sixty years have passed since Morini family founded this agricultural company: small but supported by much enthusiasm. Love of country life and passion for cultivation of the vines, first and foremost,has resulted in the birth of Ilatium. The quintessence of their warm lands of Illasi, in which nobility found its deepest roots in past history.
Harvest: The grapes are hand-picked and strictly selected, depending on the ripening period, from the first ten days in October. Then the grapes are dried in 5-6 kg crates in a controlled environment for 100 -120 days.
Vinification: The grapes are destemmed and pressed in the month of January. Cold maceration is followed by controlled fermentation for 20 - 30 days with frequent pumping over and moving of the pressed grapes (at temperatures from 18°C - 25°C).
Aging: Refinement takes place in French and North American oak barrels with a capacity of 220 - 500 litres for about 30 months, followed by 8 -10 months refinement in the bottle.
Tasting notes: The wine is clear, intense and vibrant ruby red in colour. Intense, complex and almost rich aroma, with perceived ethereal hints and notes of ripe red berries and cherry, with spicy notes of nutmeg and hints of cocoa, vanilla and black pepper. The wine is warm and smooth on the palate, with perceptible elegant tannins. A refined full-bodied wine.
