The beautiful Amarone della Valpolicella Classico sees aging in both tonneaux and botte grande for a more traditional and streamlined approach. In fact, the wood element is tightly integrated, with distant shadings of exotic spice and toasted chestnut. Raisin, leather and spirit-soaked cherries come to mind. This 2008 expression shows solid tannins and smooth consistency. Pair this dark red wine with game meat or lamb. Drink 2015-2022.
