Villa Mattielli Amarone Della Valpolicella
Only produced in the best vintages in limited numbers.This stunning Amarone is made from Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Oseleta red grapes in the gorgeous valpolicella area in Veneto. Aged for about 24 months in French and American oak barriques and tonneaux. Final long ageing in the bottle. Intense red with garnet highlights. Ethereal nose of dried fruit, tobacco and spices. On the palate notes of wild berries and cherries in alcohol. Complex, bodied and well balanced, on the palate releases a lovely mineral imprint with soft tannins and notes of prunes. Delicate earthy fragrance and delightful bitter cocoa aftertaste. Elegant, structured and powerful, gifted with exemplary freshness and enviable flavour persistence. Full bodied and warm-invigorating. Great cellar ageing potential if can resist opening this wine earlier!
