A rich powerful Amarone with its power somewhat tamed by soft acidity to give it a degree of elegance. Expect aromas...

Weighing in at whopping 16.5% alcohol this is a gentle giant that actually nicely couches its alcohol heat within...

This Amarone docg comes from the classico region of Valpolicella. It is made from 80% Corvina Veronese grapes, 10% Rondinella, between 5 and 10% Oseleta and Croatina. It is a 16.5% red alcohol that has a greasy dress. It is a very dark red and opaque, as soon as the entry into the mouth and its smell we perceive its high alcohol content, but it remains soft and it flows very well in the mouth. Its dark and semi-dried grape varieties bring back aromas of cocoa, plums and figs. This wine is authentic, although it derogates from the 4 rather classic varieties of Amarones Corvina Veronese, Corvinone, Rondinella and Molinara. The small percentage of the old grape Oseleta and the presence of a second black, the Croatina of this wine gives it this opaque color and this tannic property. The last tasting of this wine dates from February 2018 and it will have its best year between 2017 and 2021.
