Amarone della Valpolicella DOC Classico 2011
$59.95 plus HST and 20-cent deposit

Grape Varieties: Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Molinara

Origin: Valgatara, in the traditional Valpolicella Classico region

Special process: Produced with dried grapes.

Ageing: 3 years in oak barrels.

Alcohol: 15%.

Tasting Notes: Intense ruby-red colour. Ethereal and fragrant bouquet. Complex, well-structured and velvety on the palate.

Food Pairing: Wonderful with lamb. Ideal companion for game, grilled, and braised meats, roasts and full-flavoured mature cheeses.

Note: This Amarone is drinking very well now (Spring 2017) and can be enjoyed immediately, but if cellared, it will get even better and will reach its prime in about 2027-2030.

Serving Temperature: 18-20 C. It is important to allow an Amarone to reach a comfortable room temperature before serving (i.e. don't serve it at a lower temperature) in order to fully appreciate this wonderful wine at its best.

Rating: 92 2016 Decanter World Wine Awards
