About the wine

Tasting notes

Aged and looking incredible now, this is a stunning Amarone from the world's greatest producer of the style. Impenetrable dark ruby with dense fruit, rose petal, blackberry, sugared walnut and hints of sea salt. In the mouth it's a train of bittersweet chocolate, cloves, violets, plums and blackberry jam that ignites every inch of the palate. Succulent acidity, muscular tannins, incredibly long and majestically balanced...this is incredible!

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!
