Description
A blend of 80% Corvina and 10% Rondinella with dollops of Oseleta and Croatina. Grown in the oldest vineyards in the Costalunga estate in Sant'Ambrogio di Valpolicella, the fruit for this wine was dried for 3-4 months in small trays before pressing took place in January 2013. The juice then rested on the skins for 15-20 days before the vinification, after which the wine aged for 48 months in Slavonian oak barrels. Expect a rich, complex wine just approaching its peak maturity.
Tasting Notes
This is a huge and impressive wine, but somehow graceful and subtle. It packs an eclectic array of brambleberry compote, violet essence, eucalyptus, oyster shell, pure iodine, vanilla, resin, tar, cassis, plum liqueur and hot stones. You can only stand back in awe as one shade of fruit appears after the next and a barrage of tannin coats your mouth. Yet, this is gentle, agile and flowing. Nevertheless, its main attraction remains its unashamed, monumental power and muscularity. A haunting wine that sends chills down your spine. An epoch-defining wine for Veneto that harks back to the legends of the '50s and '60s. Perhaps the best Amarone ever made. Impossible to resist now, but better in 2022. Score - 99.
