Tedeschi Amarone della Valpolicella

Tedeschi Amarone della Valpolicella 2013

Pedemonte Valpolicella, Verona, Veneto, ItalyTasted several times in the last two months, this modern, stylish Amarone brings power with finesse. Look for floral blackcurrant flecked with licorice and tar before a bright beam of acidity settles in. Balanced and rich, it finishes with plenty of tannin to suggest a minimum two-decade life ahead. Made from grapes harvested in several sites across Valpolicella, this is a blend of corvina, corvinone, rondinella, rossignola, oceleta, negara and dindarella, averaging 20+ years. The grapes are racked and dried for four months before a gentle press, a two-month ferment, a three year stay in Slavonian oak, and a six-month stint in bottle after blending and bottling. Teriffic value here.Tasted: 26 November 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 48.99 BCLS AB 50.00 private wine stores ON 40.00 QC 45.50 SAQ Producer: TedeschiDistributors: Stile Brands
