The classic, renowned Valpolicella tradition from Stefano Accordini is hard to ignore, and the Amarone il Fornetto has proven to be among the north-eastern region of Veneto’s most prestigious and internationally recognized wines. The result of this tradition and dedication to quality has ensured that the wine is always a major player, regardless of the vintage, while simultaneously raising the visibility and influence of region’s status within the competitive world of wine. An intentional and balanced blend of Molinara, Rondinella and Corvina grapes, this Amarone is critically distinguished by its bold and ripe flavours. The air drying of the grapes, an age old process known simply as “appassimento,” is just one example of the traditional approaches used to curate this world-class wine.
Its ruby red coloring is accented by violet hues that flows effortlessly into the light hints of dried fruits. The taste of alcohol and sugar is present on the palate, but never reaches the point of being overwhelming as it balances into a fine relationship with it’s level of acidity. A soft and round mouthfeel, this vintage in particular presents an uncontestable level of sophistication. This dry and rich red wine is best enjoyed with beef, soft and mild cheese, as well as seafood such as tuna, salmon or shellfish. The full-bodied nature of this distinguishable wine along with its strong flavours make it perfectly suited to those collectors invested in the art and patience of wine aging.
