I love this Amarone. Unbelievable value. Bright red fruit with subtle hints of oak and rich chocolate. A rich well structured, balanced wine. Give this one about 30mins to an hour and it will really start to shine. A very pleasant introduction to Amarone at a great price.

Weinrot mit feinen Reifereflexen. Würzig, feine Teenoten, pflaumiger Untergrund, sehr aromatisch. Im Gaumen eine wunderschöne Extraktsüsse, die sich verteilt. Im eleganten Finale.

Located in Valgatara, right in the heart of the Valpolicella Classico zone, the Luigi Righetti estate has been a family run winery since 1909. Gian Maria Righetti is the fourth generation in the Righetti family to carry on the wine-making tradition. For this bold Amarone all of the grapes are sourced from their Capitel de Roari Estate vineyard. 60% Corvina, 30% Rondinella and 10% Molinara are dried on straw mats for three months before crushing. After fermentation the wine is aged two years in Slavonian oak casks. Full-bodied with an array of nutty, spicy and tangy aromas and rich earthy, smoky flavors that linger on the finish.

Deep ruby color, full-bodied, a very complex nose that emphasizes dried fruit and almonds with a hint of anise, extremely rich flavors, long, smooth finish and lingering aftertaste.
