Amarone della Valpolicella Classico

Classification

Harmony

A wet summer, but a dry September saved the vintage.

Tasting Notes

Smoky bacon aromas pour out of the glass. Big, rich, thick fruit on the palate, coating it in a mellifluous texture. Concentrated and powerful, with fruit.wrapped tannins. Rambunctious, but with admirable balance and harmony. A big wine but gracefully handled. The milk chocolate sweetness on the finish lingers, smilingly. — 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.
