Awarded 5 stars by Decanter in their Amarone della Valpolicella 2007 tasting, beating all the big names, this Amarone 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" but at the same time, it has a modern cut, with a fantastic acidity that donate elegance to the wine and at the same time longevity due the its grapes coming from a single vineyard located at about 600 mas right in the middle of the Valpolicella “classico” area.
The Amarone is a great wine with depth and structure and 2007 was a great vintage and this wine pairs beautifully game, braised meat, and aged cheeses, as well as being a meditation wine, a wine to be enjoyed on its own. For more information on how the wine is made click here
. This wine shows an amazingly complex nose with dried fruit and spices, smooth on the palate, elegant.
