2012 Secoli Amarone della Valpolicella Riserva

SKU #1319914

This classic blend of Corvina, Rondinella, and Molinara was vinified in the traditional "appassimento" style, which involves drying the grapes before fermentation to create a rich, luxurious wine. It is characteristically bold in flavor, with a silky, sensuous texture. A voluptuous wine for voluptuous dishes like red meat, game, and strong cheeses.

The nose has a candied plum character that is subtle not so overwhelming yet shows hints of cinnamon and wild cherry. On the palate this is a full-bodied wine yet restrained only 14.5% for an Amarone but it still retains that character. There has been an evolution in modern day Amarone towards drier and less alcoholic versions this is one, no sweetness at all but it gives you the illusion of that with a glycerin laden texture. The flavors are an encore to the nose, plum, spices and wild cherry and the wine finishes in a dry and focused lifting.
Drink from 2017 to 2019

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
