About

94

This is so refined and focused with layers of fruit and ultra-fine tannins. Plenty of chocolate and spice, too. Medium to full body, integrated tannins and a focused finish. Drink or hold.

Product Description:

"This wine is closely connected to the greatest wine of Valpolicella: Amarone. After pressing the dried grapes from which Amarone is made, the Valpolicella wine is passed over the still warm marc of Amarone. A second alcoholic fermentation begins which increases the alcoholic content and the wine becomes richer in colour, bouquet" - Winery
