AMARONE DELLA VALPOLICELLA 2016 DOCG
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer TEDESCHI
Assessed from a bottle purchased at the LCBO.This 2016 Vintages Essential has a very deep intense dark ruby-purple colour. Intense, complex, very ripe, warm, plum-cherry-black-raspberry nose with some earthy, sandalwood-driven, cedar notes. Dry, medium-full bodied, well structured, harmonious, mouth filling, intense, gently grippy, quite lovely, rich, bright, ripe plum-black cherry-raspberry flavours with a long, lingering, well structured, finish featuring cedar-sandalwood notes along with some telltale appassimento sweetness, excellent acidity and faint mocha-chocolate-licorice notes. It goes on and on, has excellent structure and great acidity meaning that while it is a joy to drink now, it should last for many years to come. It has 16.5% alcohol and 7 g/L residual sugar with lot number L13 on the back label. Note that the 2017 is also now on the shelves and has a separate review CSPC 433417
