Save $10.00 (20%)
|Region||Italy, Veneto, Amarone della Valpolicella|
A deep red in colour, it has an expansive bouquet, with fresh, positive scents of fruits such as blackberries and cherries. On the palate it displays spicy tones that remind one of chocolate and freshly-roasted coffee, as well as sweetish vanilla-like notes from its long maturation in wood. It is warm and well-balanced, with gentle tannins and a long finish. Food Pairings: Excellent with grilled red meat, powerful game stews and aged, rich cheeses.
This opens with aromas of mature black currant and dark baking spice. The full-bodied palate offers mature black cherry, ripe blackberry, licorice and pipe tobacco alongside a backbone of firm, fine-grained tannins. Drink 2017 through 2022.
