Amarone della Valpolicella Classico - David SterzaBrigaldara
Well-made Amarone is one of Italy's glories; it is a rich, deep flavoured wine with a dry, bitter finish on the palate. It is made by selecting the ripest bunches of the grapes, then drying them for several months on wooden slats or trays and finally pressing and fermenting them. The effect of drying is to reduce the water content so that the wine produced has more concentration of flavour.
Sterza is one of the best producers of Amarone, a wine that is now beginning to be regarded as one of Italy’s jewels. Made from dried grapes in the Valpolicella’s Classico and best region and with a full, dry flavour. An enormous, muscular wine with tones of damsons and herbs that is best drunk with game or strongly flavoured cheese.
