From the Classico zone, the 2009 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico undergoes three years of oak with stints in large oak cask, barrique and tonneaux. There’s complexity and intensity here with background shadings of dried tobacco leaf, cherry cola, blackberry liqueur and worn leather. The wine shows great integration and smoothness, with just enough tannic firmness to give it importance and cellar longevity. Drink 2014-2022.

Wine maker notes
This wine is produced from vineyards scattered throughout Italy’s historic Valpolicella Classico region in the towns of Negrar, Marano, Sant’Ambrogio, Fumane, and San Pietro in Cariano. The grapes are dried in plastic crates for three to four months and the wine then undergoes maceration on the skins followed by fermentation in stainless steel vats. It is aged for three years in Slavonian oak barrels and French oak casks, barriques, and tonneaux. Elegant and warm with a velvety mouthfeel, Amarone della Valpolicella Classico offers a bouquet of ripe fruit and cherries. It pairs well with hearty dishes like game, grilled red meats, and aged cheeses.
