Amarone Classico

Amarone Classico

Le Ragose, DOC, 2008, Valpolicella, Italy

Made with 50% Corvina, 20% Rondinella, 20% Corvinone, this is a perfect model of a "middle-weight" Amarone, not so heavy as to be impossible to drink with food, but weighty enough to retain the depth and richness that is the marker of the style. At nearly a decade old, this Amarone has begun gaining deeper chocolate, pepper and spice characteristics. A mix of fresh and dried fruit on the palate, with chocolate, pepper, cherry, raspberry and plum. This is a rich and complex wine, showing a remarkable balance acquired with age, and an acidity unique to the vintage. This wine comes in case of 12 bottles.

$95.95 × 12 bottles + $0.20 bottle deposit per bottle
