Veronelli..."Always among the very best Amarone and red wines in Italy."
The 2015 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Pergole Vece comes from a classic tradition and from a vintage that shows richness, generosity and exuberance. The blend is mostly Corvina and Corvinone (80% of the blend) with smaller parts Dindarella, Rondinella and Oseleta. The wine is made with five months of appassimento and provides a medium level of sweetness that adds to the volume and richness of the mouthfeel. The high 16.5% alcohol drives a powerful finish. This full-bodied Amarone with rich and dark concentration ages in barrique for 32 months, and you get plenty of spice and toasted smoke as a result. This is a very happy, fruit-filled vintage and the most robust wine in this flight. Serve it with braised meats. Only 5,000 bottles were made. ML Aug 2019.
This very special "old vine" amarone is only made in the very best years. It is limited in production and very difficult to source due to its massive ratings.

DESCRIPTION: Selection of the best grapes of the three crus of the company withering the grapes for 6 months. 36 months in barrique aging 8 months in bottle.
Dark ruby color, almost impenetrable with brilliant garnet reflections. The nose is auteur and very addictive, reminiscent of wild berry jam, cloves and star anise amalgamated with intense and more complex sensations of eucalyptus, rhubarb, tobacco, cardamom, boer and cinnamon. On the palate it is extraordinary where everything is dosed with precision. The structure is warm and soft with a powerful and noble tannin with a fresh and sapid perfect contribution.
