Amarone della Valpolicella 2010 Capitel della Crosara Classico 15.5% 75cl

Deep red/black colour, full-on nose with earthy, spicy aromas and hints of violets, blackberries and mint; full-bodied, rich and smooth with complex, earthy raisin flavours and long, meaty, fiery finish underpinned by tangy cherry and liquorice dimensions.

This long established Veronese family company, headed by Giorgio Montresor, is producing wines which increasingly rival the offerings of the region's more fashionable names. The estate wines, from 100 ha of vineyards in Valpolicella and Garda, offer remarkable value for money, particularly the Capitel della Crosara vineyard near Negrar which produces fine, richly-flavoured Ripasso and a generous, classically-styled Amarone with great concentration and texture.
