Bertani Amarone della Valpolicella Valpentana Villa Arvedi 2008

Bertani Amarone della Valpolicella Valpentana Villa Arvedi 750ml 2008     
Sku: 17033

Veneto, Italy Carefully selected grape bunches are hand-harvested from top vineyards planted in the hills of Valpantena, north of the city of Verona in northeast Italy, in the communes of Quinto, Grezzana, and Santa Maria.

Tasting notes
Color - Deep ruby Bouquet - The nose is dense and deep, with aromas of raisins, ripe cherries, wild berries and spice Taste - The aromas carry through onto the dry, full-bodied and well-structured palate; approachable, with vibrant red fruit flavors, soft, supple tannins and a memorable finish.

 Wine Advocate 88 points (Feb 2012)
The 2008 Amarone della Valpolicella Valpantena is a dark, powerful wine loaded with black cherries, spices, menthol and minerals. There is no shortage of richness, yet some angular contours lurk, and are likely to always be present. Today the 2008 comes across as an unfinished wine that has been released far too early. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2020.

Wine maker notes
The best whole, perfectly ripened bunches are hand harvested in early September and carried to farmhouses where they are left to dry on traditional straw mats called arelle, a process which raisins the grapes and concentrates the natural sugars. After approximately 120 days, the grapes are pressed and slow fermentation begins at a low temperature. Fermentation continues until the sugars have been completely converted to alcohol.

Technical notes
15.5% abv 80% Corvina Verones and 20% Rondinella

Food pairing
An outstanding match with roast meat and game, as well as hearty, flavorful cheeses served with figs and nuts
