Amarone della Valpolicella DOC Riserva 2006
All the seduction of Amarone is reflected in this wine that displays great character and structure. It has been chosen by the Pasqua Family as an icon to celebrate its 90th anniversary. Produced in a limited edition of 1.925 numbered bottles, matured in barrels for 26 months and then aged in bottles.
This is a rich and powerful Amarone, on the nose reveals notes of cherries, forest fruits, hints of dark chocolate and cedar. In the mouth it is intense and full bodied, with great concentration of fruit and spice. Its barely imperceptible sweetness gives way to a note of dark cherry and blackberry, typical of the Amarone. Fresh and balanced it has a polished texture thanks to velvety tannins that support the juicy, dense and rich palate.
A wine that can be savoured on its own or served with rich red meat or game recipes; another unusual but interesting pairing is with dark chocolate.
