AUD$55 from Dan Murphy’s. For the uninitiated, Amarone is a rich Italian style of wine requiring the partial drying of the harvested grapes on straw mats, appassimento, for about 120 days. Fermentation is long and slow, lasting from four to six weeks. The wine then matures in 30hectoliter Slavonian oak barrels for two years, and for a further six months in bottle before being released onto the market. The additional effort in the production of this wine accounts for the higher prices. For this Zonin Amarone, it is a blend of 60% Corvina, 35% Rondinella and 5% Molinara. Incidentally, while the 2008 is classified as DOC, this designation has been promoted to DOCG as of December 2009. Solid, deep ruby colour with a purple-garnet rim. Intense scent of ripe plums, prunes, black cherry compote and wet espresso grains. This is a rich, concentrated, full-bodied wine. The acidity leaves a fleshy citrus-like sensation, more like slurping on a dessert sauce of reduced berries. 14.5% alc. Firm grippy tannins morph into a chewy, plump mouthfeel. Lovely flavours of black plums, black cherry jam, nutmeg and sweet peppercorns. Overall, an elegant and enjoyable Amarone. Drink now – 2020.
