A great single vineyard Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2001 from the wine maker personal cellar, a great wine to be enjoyed on its own or to accompany mature cheeses or dark chocolate.
A complex, elegant, classy Amarone that not only shows the potential and longevity of the appellation, but also that grapes grown at higher altitude produce wines with an extra gear, wine that have something extra. This is a great wine that needs to be decanted.
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.
