Corvina 75%, Corvinone 15%, Rondinella 10%. Wine of medium body, with gentle spicy notes of vanilla and chocolate and the typical notes of cherry, black cherry and white pepper. On the palate, freshness and drinkability (typical of Valpolicella) combine with a silky tanninc structure and an intense aromatic persistence, typical of Amarone. Fresh, soft and sapid finish. Look for this wine at the LCBO Vintages section.
“A great wine, with mutually balanced fruit and spicy notes and majestic expressiveness. Starting with the eye, this wine presents a deep colour, bright and lively. Then to the aroma, its entry is invitingly sweet, while evading any off or unpleasant notes. Its fragrance testifies to the virtue and skill of its winemaking. And now to the palate, where the creamy texture flows full-bodied, softly abundant and generous, its power and richness leading to persistence and thick vigor. Its cassis presents a minty allure with fabulous affability and smoothness. Absolutely among the best Italian wines.” – 98 points: lucamaroni.com, Jan. 18, 2019
