Riondo Amarone della Valpolicella 2017 75cl
The Riondo Amarone gives big rich aromas of ripe black cherries and plums, with dried fruit characters and a touch of spice in the background. On the palate it is plush with ripe plum and bramble characters, a hint of vanilla in there amongst the supple tannins with a juicy acidity.
The grapes are hand picked in mid-September, the Corvina, Rondinella and Corvinone grapes are stored on racks in drying rooms, until the January following the harvest. The fermentation takes place with skin contact and continual pumping over. The wine is then aged in oak for 24 months before bottling.
This would be a good match for rich pasta dishes, game and grilled or roasted red meats. The classic companions to an Amarone.
