Valpolicella, Veneto, Italy
Corvina Veronese 45%, Corvinone 45%, Rondinella 5%, Oseleta 5%
Colour: Ruby sloping down on inked shades.
Aroma: Olfactory emanation calibrated on warm notes of withered violets, both ripe and configured blackberries, sweet spices, and tomato confit that converge towards darker aromas of wet fur, willow bark, Tuscan cigar, cocoa beans, and resin.
Palate: The taste reveals a broad and robust structure that does not yield a millimetre in elegance and clarity; the various components appear merged into each other to compose a precious harmony culminating in a mineral, clear and tenacious finish.
Traditionally enjoyed with game, roasted and grilled meats, casseroles and well-matured cheeses. Excellent with hearty dishes. Amarone’s distinctive flavour compliments exotic sweet and sour cuisine and is therefore also perfect with Asian and middle-eastern dishes.
