Amarone, the exclusive symbol of Valpolicella Classica, is a highly structured, complex, elegant and velvety wine. It has an intense ruby red colour and a warm, spicy bouquet reminiscent of raisined fruit. Ageing potential 18-20 years. Ideal with game, char-grilled and braised meats and fully matured cheeses. Due to the lingering aroma of raisined grapes, it can be paired with the fascinating delights of Asian an Middle-Eastern cuisine and their unmistakable spicy and sweet-sour flavour combination.

Wine Spectator

This full, thick Amarone offers masses of ripe fruit and fresh herbs, with velvety tannins. Turns to black pepper and fruit on the finish. Should age beautifully, but why wait? Drink now.

Score: 92. —James Suckling, July 31, 2010.

Wine Enthusiast

Aged 18 months in oak, this plump, generous Amarone opens with a mixed bouquet of red fruit, blackberry, cinnamon, molasses and toasted almond. It tastes smooth and ripe with a sophisticated, but slight sweet mouthfeel.

Score: 91. —Monica Larner, February 01, 2011.
