About the wine

Tasting notes

Nearly black color. Extremely youthful, unforthcoming nose hints at black cherry, plum, violet, bitter chocolate, quinine and bell pepper. This is almost too concentrated and tannic to describe. Palate- and toothstaining flavors of black plum, coffee liqueur, spices, tobacco, vanilla and herbs abound. Alcoholic, heady wine, with a much denser and more tannic finish than the Amarones of Giuseppe Quintarelli. Not for those who believe that less can be more.

The Grape

Amarone

Amarone, or Amarone della Valpolicella, is an Italian red blend of Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara grapes that are late harvested and left to dry into raisins. These wines are extremely age worthy and can be very expensive, representing the very best reds made in Italy. Expect density of fruit, backed by good acidity, plenty of body and intense aromas and flavours of cherry liqueur, dried fig, chocolate, cinnamon, mint, plum and crushed gravel. Wonderful wines!
