AMARONE DELLA VALPOLICELLA CLASSICO 2017 DOCG, Veneto, Italy
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer FUMANELLI
This excellent 2017 has a youthful fairly deep intense purple colour. The nose shows lots of classy, ripe Damson plum fruit with hints of roses, warm autumnal chestnuts and just-picked aspberries. Dry, medium-full bodied, well structured, harmonious, extracty but balanced, ripe, raspberry-plum fruit flavours with a lingering, faintly spicy, leathery-sandalwood notes on the lingering, mouthfiling, well balanced, raspberry-kir-tinged finish. It would be divine with a truffled mushroom risotto! This blend of 40% Corvina, 40% Corvinone and 20% Rondinella has 16% alcohol and 5 g/L residual sugar with lot number L#18.20.0617 on the back label. Not to be missed. CSPC 475053

TASTING NOTE: The Fumanelli family have been producing grapes from their estate in the heart of Valpolicella since 1470. Their Amarone is sourced from vines over 40 years of age and deftly balances a rich, powerful character with fine elegance and poise, showing concentrated raspberry and blackberry fruit, tobacco, herbs, spice, and a velvety texture. It will continue to evolve into the early 2030s. Price $ 59.95
