Amarone della Valpolicella Classico

Classification

Exuberance

A famously hot, dry vintage resulted in an early harvest with a reduced yield.

Tasting Notes

Big booming nose of orange zest and warm spices. A huge fan of warm spice flavours and a rich, indulgent texture; chocolatey and gourmand. Soft, decadent and mature already. Clearly a warm vintage but well controlled compared to previous wines of similar ripeness. Long, orangey finish. Hard to resist now, and probably at peak. — MW Nick Jackson

Style

Exuberance

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