Buglioni L'Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2008

Buglioni L'Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 750ml 2008      
Sku: 1598726*

Alfredo Buglioni began making wine in 1993 after purchasing 34 acres of land in the Valpolicella Classico area of Italy: 22 acres at Ca Vegri, six acres around the Carrubio winery and six acres in Bardolino. Alfredo and his son Mariano grow traditional, indigenous varietals like Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Molinara and keep the yields low to produce wines of intensity. Initially, the Buglionis used contract winemakers, but finding that their wine tasted similar to all others, they hired their own full-time winemaker, Diego Bertoni. Their first vintage of Amarone, the 2001 was awarded a gold medal at Vinitaly.

Tasting notes
Intense dark garnet color. Elegant aroma of mature fruit, cherries and spices, with slight hint of vanilla. Warm, persistent flavour, pervasive and harmonious.

Rating
 Wine Enthusiast 89 points (Nov 2013)
This Amarone has sensations of plum, stewed prune, bitter almond and black licorice. It has a very warm midpalate and is enjoyable now but seemingly fast approaching its ideal drinking window; enjoy over the next few years.

Food pairing
this wine is perfect with spicy and highly flavoured game. Serve at a temperature of around 18 C. Uncork at least one hour before serving.
