A fantastic Amarone della Valpolicella from a great vintage. The 2011 was a great vintage for the area and this wine will blow you away. An elegant, powerful, modern Amarone, an outstanding red wine. Made with grapes from a single vineyard located at about 600 mas, right in the middle of the Valpolicella classic area, this Amarone has a beautiful acidity that confers elegance and longevity to the wine, this is a wine that can be enjoyed now or drunk in a few years time. This wine shows an amazingly complex nose with dried fruit and spices, smooth on the palate, elegant.
The Amarone is a great wine with depth and structure and 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
