2018 Venturini Amarone della Valpolicella Classico DOCG Veneto, Italy

$67.99 USD

Winery Notes:

"The “Amarone” style dates back to the 8th/10th Century when it became necessary to label the wine produced with dried grapes. The label on this wine shows an effigy that decorates an ancient Romanesque church located near our cellar. It depicts two winged lions guarding a vase of wine."
Color: Luminous garnet.

Bouquet: Rich notes of brandied cherries, violets, with developing spicy notes of pepper and cloves.

Taste: Explosive and warm, rich red fruit that is well balanced by the pleasantly savory dryness of the strong tannins. The balance of fruit acidity adds elegance and enhances the enjoyment, and on the long finish there is a taste of small, sweet fruits preserved in spirits.
