Wine Enthusiast suggests Amarone to warm up the Winter!
According to Kerin O’Keefe, Italian Editor of the prestigious magazine Wine Enthusiast, “With winter in full swing, nothing says “warm up by the fire” like a glass of Amarone. Americans are longtime fans of this full-bodied, velvety red wine, and the U.S. is the second largest destination market, accounting for 14% of total exports.”
In her article “Italian Amarone to warm up your winter” she mentions just some of the Amarone she tasted, among which our Capitel Monte Olmi Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG Classico Riserva 2015, awarder 92 points and the special mention Cellar Selection!
Here are the tasting notes: This single-vineyard bottling opens with multifaceted aromas of new leather, forest floor, fragrant purple flowers and spice. The bold, densely concentrated palate doles out baked plum, stewed prune, nutmeg and licorice framed in tightly knit, velvety tannins. You’ll also notice the heat of evident alcohol on the close, but the fleshy fruit flavors don’t let it dominate. Drink 2022–2030.
Great scores also for our other two Amarone wines:
– La Fabriseria Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG Classico Riserva 2015 94 points
– Marne 180 Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG 92 points
Thank you very much Kerin O’Keefe! Thank you Wine Enthusiast!
