The colour of our Amarone is an intense ruby red with brick red nuances. All perfumes are of ripe red fruits, above all cherry and black cherry. This is a wine with great smoothness, which is slowly perceived as its short steel ageing keeps the acidity high.
The Il Monte Caro winery started as an idea Enzo Marcolini had in 1986 when he and his wife Carla came across the land on one of the slopes of Mount Caro in Mezzane di Sotto, fell in love and decided to stay embarking on a new agricultural adventure.
Once on the hill, often called by local people “stony land” due to the strong presence of limestone rocks, they planted olive trees and grapevines then they built an artesian well and our rural home, thus creating the foundations of the family farm.
