AMARONE DELLA VALPOLICELLA 2017 DOCG
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer TEDESCHI
Assessed from a bottle purchased at the LCBO. This 2017 Vintages Essential has a youthful deep intense dark purple colour. Intense, fairly complex, ripe, plummy-cherry-raspberry nose with some slightly earthy, sandalwood-tinged, cedar notes. Dry, medium to medium-full bodied, very nicely structured, harmonious, mouth filling, intense, gently grippy, quite lovely, very bright, ripe plum-black-cherry-raspberry flavours with a lingering, fairly high acid, still fresh finish featuring elegant cedar-sandalwood notes along with a touch of appassimento sweetness, excellent acidity and faint black licorice notes. Itís nicely balanced with fine structure and bright acidity meaning that it is a joy to drink now and should last for many years to come. It has 16.5% alcohol and 7 g/L residual sugar with lot number L4 on the back label. Note that the 2016 is also now on the shelves and has a separate review. CSPC 433417
