Amarone della Valpolicella Classico

Classification

Harmony

A complex season of at times cool and wet weather.

Tasting Notes

A gamey, savoury, restrained nose. On the palate, a great spectrum of flavours: dried flowers, sweet spices, cedar. This is most impressive, showcasing freshness, purity and complexity all within a medium body. Persistent. Lots of pleasure. Fresh and dry. Very much a table wine style with a dry finish. — 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.
