Amarone Albino Armani, Amarone Slow Wine

Senza titolo-1

Amarone Albino Armani 2010 is entered in the TOP12 OF SLOW WINE MAGAZINE! Thanks SLOW WINE! Immediately shows a refined harmony between the various sweet components: on the nose, as on the palate, notes of sweet licorice (recalling Haribo wheels), good fleshy fruit and a lightly toasted note combine well. This sweet profile, however, is not lacking in acidity and freshness, allowing the wine to flow freely on the palate. – Free Download

About Us

About Us

Albino Armani winery is a working tradition that goes back in time. The first evidence of vineyard ownership was in 1607. Today, Albino Armani vineyards are located in three different Italian regions (Veneto, Trentino and Friuli) and they cover about 230 acres of land. In 1962, the municipality of Dolcè (Veneto) became the winery’s home base; it is located in the southern part of the Adige Valley, a glacial valley characterized by a strong identity. We have a strong bond with the territory where our grapevines grow. To preserve them, each day is a challenge for us and the risk of losing our produce is the guiding spirit that gives us the strength to keep doing our job. Our wines are the exact representation of where the grapes come from and in the same time, they describe their own territory of origin. For example, our white wines have fresh bouquet notes of white flowers, result of temperature fluctuations and constant ventilation typical of the Trentino land; and our red wines, on the other hand are original in character, fresh yet complex, result of the high altitude of the Valpolicella hills.
