Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG – Cerasum Riserva di Famiglia
This is a premium product that was originally created for the Bennati family’s own collection of wines; at the same time, it breathes new life into their project to promote the Valtramigna region thanks to the name “Cerasum” (latin word for “cherry”) in honour of the ancient local cherry-growing tradition.
An Amarone with a strong character.

SENSORY NOTES AND FOOD PAIRINGS
Tasting notes: deep red wine with garnet nuances; on the nose, intense scents of ripe fruit and jam, delicate floral notes (pansy), tertiary notes (tobacco, cacao, cinnamon). Very elegant on the palate thanks to the balance between structure and softness. Complex finish, with clear notes of alcohol soaked fruit (cherries, blackberries, raspberries) and intense balmy scents.
Food pairings: it matches very well with tasty dishes, red meat and seasoned cheese; it goes very well with dark chocolate too. Furthermore, Cerasum is also good as a meditative wine.
