Amarone della Valpolicella Classico

Classification

Exuberance

Warm July and August; a small but high quality harvest.

Tasting Notes

Meaty, gamey, rich nose. On the palate, round, rich and full; the fruit envelopes all corners of the mouth. Powerful tannins and a meaty finish. Big, exuberant, joyful wine which will benefit from another 10 years’ ageing. Will please all comers! — MW Nick Jackson

Andrea Lonardi

Angelini Wines & Estates

A fleshy wine, that will give the best of his expression in the next ten years.

Style

Exuberance

These wines showed an extrovert character, usually with intense aromas, rich fruit and an overall sensuality.
