About

93

This is a very attractive Amarone with a tight and generous core of black fruit flavors. From a slightly cooler growing season, the 2013 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Pegrandi is a blend of 30% Corvina, 30% Corvinone, 30% Rondinella, 5% Oseleta and 5% Raboso Veronese. The grapes complete up to 150 days of appassimento, which is longer than average for the appellation. This pretty, full-bodied wine offers contrasting notes of savory spice (with 16% alcohol) that are pitted against sweet notes of rum cake and blackberry liqueur. Some 8,000 bottles were made.

Product Description:

"Colour: intense, of red fruit preserves. Tasting notes: a full-bodied wine, it has a distinct and elegant tannic structure and is well-balanced and persistent. Bouquet: intense, of red fruit preserved in alcohol (cherry, plum), well combined with noble and persistent spicy scents" - Importer
