Details

Ideally drink until 2030.

 

Decanting time: 2 hours.

 

A serious, sleek and thoughtful wine from the Veneto region of Italy. The grapes undergo meticulous selection and stored on straw mats for approximately six weeks after harvest, following an ancient tradition that lends to an incredible density in concentration which provides the backdrop for a wine that will age exceptionally well.

 

Dark, opaque red in color. The nose is elegantly presented with a soft, full and accessible bouquet delicately infused with subtle hints of ripe red berries, rose spice and leather. This concentrated, very well-structured yet delicate dry wine offers a refreshing, lively mouthfeel. A fruit-centered Amarone showcases an abundant burst of fresh black currant flavor, gently moderated by pear and a hint of cardamom.

 

The bulky palate is expertly proportioned with the fine tannins and the strong, fruity notes, harmoniously following a smooth line towards a long, tightly-sustained finish. A blend of predominately Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara grapes with 15% Oseleta, Croatina and Corvinone grapes, this is an equally powerful and delicate Italian Amarone.

 

Great ageing potential. Best before 2030. Aged 24 months in 25% new, 500 litre French barriques. Serve with spicy dishes, grilled or roasted red meats.

 

Awards for this vintage include 3 stars Verona Wine Top 2011 best wine of its category.
