"Red wine of large importance, full-bodied, intense and elegant. The word “Amarone” was born in the eighteenth century when was necessary to identify a wine produced from raisin grapes, like the Recioto, but with organoleptic properties that were totally different."

This estate shows consistently excellent results and makes another strong showing with this set of wines. The 2015 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is a textbook rendition of contemporary Amarone. The blend is 60% Corvina, 20% Corvinone, 17% Rondinella and 3% Oseleta. The grapes see 90 days of appassimento. The wine is aged in barrique for 24 months. This is a real crowd-pleaser, with bright fruit tones, dark cherry, plum, tender raisins, spice, smoke and teriyaki spice. They really did a great job with this one. There is tightness and definition here with cracked black pepper and cardamom seed. You could even uncork one right away with a spicy Mongolian barbecue. Some 13,000 bottles were made.
