Amarone della Valpolicella Classico

Classification

Harmony

From a famous European vintage: hot and dry.

Tasting Notes

Restrained nose, but on the palate, almost Mediterranean and tropical fruited, with tinned pineapple notes – very unusual! Very seamless, fresh, youthful, suave fruit caresses the palate; melted tannins. A middle way wine here; no extravagance one way or another. Only mid-weight; very tender and supple. Easy pleasure. — MW Nick Jackson

Style

Harmony

These wines are balanced, classically proportioned, showing grace, equanimity and poise. Usually they show more vibrancy than the gentle wines, but less flamboyance than the exuberant wines. These are closest to the Bertani house style.
