Castelforte Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico DOCG 2016
Castelforte Amarone della Valpolicella is a full bodied red wine. The long, slow fermentation gives this wine a deep garnet red color, a complex bouquet of cinnamon, cherry jam and walnut and a palate of ripe black cherry fruit with notes of vanilla and coffee on the finish. It pairs perfectly with rich pasta dishes, game and grilled or stewed red meats as well as mature cheeses.
"Strawberry, violet and peony aromas are complicated by hints of candied violet and cinnamon. Then juicy, bright and dense with sneaky concentration and density to the very suave red cherry and sweet spice flavors. Finishes very long, and remarkably light and lively on the palate, with wonderful balance. Marvelous Amarone that is more about grace than power." 97 Points, Luca Maroni
