Amarone della Valpolicella Classico (Red)
This is an exemplary, deep-coloured Amarone with enticing notes of spice, dried fruit, black raspberries and cedar. The body is decadent with rich fruit and round tannins yet with acidity that balances high alcohol levels out wonderfully in preparation for a seemingly everlasting finish. Aged for 15 months in French oak. Hard to resist now, but could benefit from 5-10 years of ageing.
