Corteforte's Vigneto di Osan is a masterclass wine! Stunning concentration, small production. The wine is produced exclusively from a single parcel of wines within one vineyard and is a must for Amarone lovers.

Corteforte is owned by Carlo Cerrutti a very successful lawyer in Italy. Carlo has renovated this 14th Century property to include hotel accommodation and a restaurant Enoteca della Valpolicella. Carlo has also built an underground cellar, this is an incredible investment when you consider Corteforte only produce 20,000 bottles for the World. Valpolicella Ripasso produces the largest quantity with 9,000 bottles. Amarone is traditionally a high alcohol, masculine wine, however Corteforte is producing wonderful wines with finesse and character. Silver Medal winner at the International Wine Challenge. Vigneti di Osan is a single vineyard Amarone, this wine expresses incredible power and depth. The sweet wines are world class, having attained many international awards. Recioto is one of the finest there is, this wine marriages wonderfully with chocolate. Amandorlato has an almond taste due to the vines being grown next to almond trees. IL Sole is a more traditional sweet wine - made with white grapes, wonderful freshness. Recommended at the International Wine Challenge. Only 1000 bottles produced of IL Sole.
