2015 Domini Veneti Amarone della Valpolicella Classico

SKU #1387358 94 points James Suckling

 A very rich and complex Amarone that is remarkably fresh and has no hint of caramel. On the palate a lot of power, but this stands on a solid base of tannins and the fresh acidity lifts the full body. Long, bitter-chocolate finish.  (11/2018)

K&L Notes

From the producer: "A very balanced year, even if the summer was fairly dry, during which time the excess water supply from the rainy 2014 nourished the vines. Thanks to the warm and prolonged summer temperatures, the vines notably developed their photosynthesis, increasing the concentration of sugars and colours. The 2015 vintage is marked for its great balance and longevity, with very soft and sweet tannins. Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG Classico is the absolute expression of the balance between elegance and structure. It is produced with grapes grown in the Valpolicella Classica area and left in drying rooms, then aged in large oak barrels for at least 18 months and in bottles for another 6-8 months. In a word, it is a satisfying wine: it satisfies the eye with its dense, compact garnet-red colour. It satisfies the nose with an intense fruity aroma. And of course, it satisfies the palate that loves intense flavours."

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.
