The 2017 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico opens up with an inviting yet somewhat understated mix of peppery florals, cherry liquor, plums and sage. Here I’m finding silky textures offset by tart wild berry fruits, salty minerals and brisk acids in an expression that is much more savory than sweet. A coating of fine tannins lingers, along with a note of baker’s chocolate. I have to give Farina credit for creating such a versatile and balanced expression of Amarone.
"Superbe wine, pride of Valpolicella Classica, born from the careful selection of grapes dried in the typical fruit drying sheds for about 4 months. The meticulous care of the grapes during the drying and the right maturation first in barriques and then in Slavonian oak barrels, develop complexity of scents and flavors. Elegant, smooth, balanced, it expresses tradition, terroir and passion. Ruby red colour with garnet tinges. Ethereal, spicy, with cherry hints, sour cherry, raspberry, currant in alcohol, cocoa and balsamic notes. In the mouth is warm, full, of great structure, fine and balanced." - Winery
