LE VIGNE: Amarone della Valpolicella
|Type||Still Wine, Red|
|Food pairing||Ideal with highly flavoursome dishes that can balance well with its rich character.|
Description: Deep and almost opaque in colour. Pronounced aromas of morello cherry lead on the nose, underlaid with complex layers of oak and spice. Its flavours are rich and strong, with heavy tannins and considerable texture – this is a powerful wine, with great character.
Food Match: Ideal with highly flavoursome dishes that can balance well with its rich character. Try lamb chops with coarse grain mustard, curried beef with lemongrass, or a five spice pork and green bean stir fry
Vinification: Individual parcels of Rondinella, Corvina and Molinara grapes are hand-selected for their concentration and ripeness, before being separated and dried to reduce water content, and further increase concentration. These were then fermented dry and aged in oak, before the parcels were blended prior to bottling.
