Corvina/Rondinella/Molinara Blend * 75cl * 15% ABV * Veneto, Italy
Certain classic wine styles have gained cult status, not just for wonderful flavours, but also for the timeless methods in which they’re made. Occasionally, some wines combine both, and Amarone is justifiably a cult classic wine. Made in the Veneto region from Corvina, Molinara and Rondinella grapes that are dried “appassimento” – laid out on bamboo racks in dry lofts, where the drying process concentrates flavours before the grapes are fermented into a dry, rich, full-blooded yet soft and explosively flavoured red wine. Masi are the largest producers in the region and are justifiably famous for the consistency and quality of their appassimento drying methods and the wonderful wines they make. This is a powerful red wine that can match the strongest of red meats, the most pungent of cheeses, yet is still able to age for another 30-35 years. Remarkable.
We also have this wonderful wine in half bottles. We do recommend that with both sizes you decant the wine for a while before drinking.
