Brigaldara Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2010
|Region||Italy, Veneto, Amarone della Valpolicella|
The 2010 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is a thick and delicious interpretation that delivers loads of personality and determination. The bouquet is redolent of dried fruit, prune, cassis, spice, leather, licorice and Teriyaki sauce. The intensity is absolutely irresistible with power and muscle delivered in a silken glove. Round tannins and plush fruit richness gives the wine loads of energy to fuel its long finish.
Dark ruby-red. Aromas and flavors of dark plum, coffee beans and botanical herbs complicated by balsamic nuances. Just a touch tough and chewy on the long, perfumed finish. Interestingly, this Amarone showcases well the drinkability of the 2010 vintage and the balsamic nuances typical of the Case Vecie vineyard.
Bright and lively, this medium-bodied Amarone features a tarry overtone and flavors of crushed cherry and raspberry, grilled herb, incense and cocoa powder. Firm, spiced finish. Drink now through 2021. 10,000 cases made, 3,000 cases imported.
