Tasting Notes

This is classic Amarone. It is not like the massive more porty versions, which I also like, but as it ages you really sense the terroir and the grapes of Valpolicella, that can be masked by the sweetness and power of the more modern styles. It has exquisitely beautiful fruit both on the nose and the palate. It is concentrated but again, like the Ripasso, there is balance that will help the wine to age. I tried the 2007 at the cellar in the Spring. It was their second vintage and it was so fine. It had become more delicate with age, and had finesse and good length. The 2011 has an even better future.


Press Note:

“They are gorgeous. Real thinking wines – beautiful, intelligent artefacts, filled with the taste of sweet-sour amarena cherries, sap, dried fruit and a very gentle tinge of old wood.” Victoria Moore, The Telegraph
