Cantine Riondo Amarone della Valpolicella

|
2017

Riondo Amarone della Valpolicella is a full-bodied red wine with a garnet red shade. Its complex bouquet recalls cherry jam, ripe black cherries and spicy notes of vanilla and licorice. On the palate it is juicy, well-structured with a fresh and fruity finish. It pairs perfectly with rich pasta dishes, game and grilled or stewed red meats as well as mature cheeses.

 

 The benchmark French wine review Gilbert & Gaillard gushes over the 2017 vintage "Light red with ruby-brown tints. A mix of hazelnut, cacao, ash, stewed red fruits, spices and dried flowers on the nose. Broad-shouldered palate honed by fine tannins. Harmonious combination of fruit and oak influence. The finish shows remarkable length. 93 points."

 

Amarone for less than $40? Unheard of. Rated 93 points? A unicorn if there ever was one.
