Amarone Classico Ca' Bertoldi Fratelli Recchia 2005

External Review by WineExpress.com:

The Recchia family have been producing wine in the Veneto since 1906. Today, Fratelli Recchia is a traditional winery with modern technology and know-how to produce the finest Amarone Classico and other wines from the local grape varieties in their estate vineyards. The grapes for this Ca’ Bertoldi Amarone Classico come from a small single vineyard next to the winery. Hand selected and dried on straw mats it shows the richness that you can only get from Amarone. Wine Spectator scored it 92 points saying “A tarry red, with firm tannins backing tobacco-tinged flavors of dried black currant, cocoa powder, cherry preserves, ground spice and nut. This shows good intensity and focus, ending with a well-knit, lingering finish. Drink now through 2025.”
