This wine really is mind blowing and perfectly made in every way. Winner of the prestigious Decanter World Wine Awards “Best Amarone” in 2012, this 2014 vintage is just as good and we have stocked up. Selected grapes from Rizzardi’s three Cru vineyards make up the wine from vines up to 36 years old.
Amarone is a unique style of wine as grapes are dried out before fermentation for a minimum of 3 months. This really concentrates all aroma and flavour characteristics leading to wines that are rich, luscious and voluptuous. Aromatic with ripe dark berried fruit alongside sweet spice. The texture is rounded with abundant dark berried fruit supported by fine oak. Full bodied, voluptuous and a wonderful wine for a special occasion. Perfect with beef wellington or steak with blue cheese.
