2014 Amarone Della Valpolicella
Varietal: 80% Corvina · 10% Molinara · 10% Rondinella
The Corvina varietal is famed around the world for its inclusion in such fine wines as Amarone and Valpolicella, where it is blended with small quantities of other grape varietals to produce wines of exceptional character and balance. Intense ruby red color with nuances of garnet, elegant aroma of ripe plum and hints of chocolate. Great harmony on the palate with silken tannins, harmonious, mature.
