Fasoli Gino - 2011
What distinguishes Amarone from other red wines is the fact that the grapes are dried over the winter prior to pressing. As you’d expect, the drying process concentrates the flavours even further and what you end up with in your glass is a delicious, mouth-filling wine with a list of flavours that go on and on and on. Soaked prunes, dried figs, blackcurrant, liquorice, leather, spice, caramel… and that’s just for starters. Exemplary winemaking, this is a vinous luxury that can be stored for years to come, or enjoyed now with a full-flavoured dish. Stunning.
Can be cellared for 10-15 years from vintage
