Luigi Righetti Capitel de Roari Amarone Red Blend Veneto 2009
This is Righetti's reserve Amarone. Well-balanced with dark fruit flavors, earth and meaty components. Aromas of black cherry and prunes joined by beefy and earthy notes. Moves along the palate nicely with a mix of dark and dried fruit with some meatiness on the finish. Elegant but exhibiting good concentration. Food Pairing: Bolognese, cheese, good match with beef or lamb dishes.

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.
