Rengo takes its name from the historic bell in the tower overlooking the Piazza delle Erbe in Verona. The wine consists of 70% Corvina Veronese, 20% Rondinella and 10% Molinara, all are local varietals . following a 5 month drying process and a very long and slow fermentation, Rengo Amarone is patiently aged in large oak casks and French oak barriques for at least 3 years and it shows a full, round, intense and complex taste.
"I like the slightly exotic, fresh tinge to the fruit here, showing a passion-fruit edge to the red berries on the nose. Some almond, too. The same, refreshing, confiture-like character on the full to medium palate with very fine, firm tannins and a long finish. Chocolate at the end, too. Delicious to taste now, it will be interesting to see how this develops in bottle. Try from 2023." James Suckling, 92 Points
