This classical Amarone is made from a blend of Corvina Veronese, Rondinella and Croatina grape variety. A delightful wine, it boasts a beautiful ruby red colour and intense aromas of red fruit such as ripe cherry, alongside elegant notes of spice. On the palate it is full-bodied and very dry with a velvet soft mouthfeel. Flavours of cherry and dried fruits are pronounced with light herbal notes before a lingering finish completes a superbly well-rounded experience.

VALPOLICELLA BLEND - The Valpolicella Blend is based on three indigenous red-wine grape varieties grown in the Veneto region in Italy's north-east. Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara. Corvina provides acidity and sour-cherry flavours, Rondinella, lends colour and body to the blend whilst offering some herbal notes. Additional tannins and bright acidity are provided by Molinara.
“Dark spice and baked red fruit aromas, sweet and sour cherry on the palate with light, fresh herbal notes to finish.”

VALPOLICELLA RIPASSO, ITALY - Valpolicella is the most famous red wine to come out of the Veneto wine region in north-eastern Italy. Valpolicella Ripasso Classico wines are produced under the Valpolicella Ripasso DOC from grapes grown within the traditional classico vineyard area of the Valpolicella. They are more complex than their regular Valpolicella counterparts and generally higher in tannins as the wines are re-fermented on the pre-fermented, tannin-rich skins of grapes used to make the area's dried-grape passito wines
