Awarded 5 stars by Decanter in their Amarone della Valpolicella 2007 tasting, beating all the big names, this Amarone Gamba is classic and modern at the same time. Classic because it does not belong to the category of the Amarones "made to be drunk as soon as they are bottled" and at the same time, it has a modern cut, by being pleasantly fresh. An amazing wine in an fantastic vintage, to drink now or keep a few more years, plenty of life still left to be enjoyed on its own or with food. Only a few cases left
The artisan who made it
Over the generations, the Gamba winery has been passed down from father to son and it is now run by the three brothers Giovanni, Giuseppe and Martino helped by their own sons and daughters. Located right in the heart of the Valpolicella Classico area and spanning six acres, they grow the classic Valpolicella grapes, from Corvina to Rondinella with which then they make the classic Valpolicella wines, from valpolicella to amarone, from valpolicella ripasso to a recioto della valpolicella.
