Intense garnet red in colour, this wine is rich, full bodied and firm. Its perfume is clear and fresh, its taste is velvety and lingering. Well structured and beautifully balanced with soft tannins and a hint of chocolate and vanilla. Recommended with red meat, game, grilled-meat, braised meat and seasoned cheese as well as at the end of a meal, as meditation wine.

The 2018 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico La Rosta shows dusty florals, dark wood tones, dried cherries and currants. It's silky and deeply textural with mineral tinged red fruits and saturating spice, taking on a bit of heat, as medical cherries, cinnamon and clove settle in. This leaves the palate aching with concentration and a coating of fine tannins, while finishing long to hints of licorice and dark chocolate. I like the mix of sweet and savory here, as well as the lower 15.% abv.
