FABIANO, winery in the Valpolicella region in Veneto in north-east Italy.


AMARONE DELLA VALPOLICELLA CLASSICO, STORICA | 2015 15%. 40% Corvina, 30% Corvinone, 30% Rondinella & Croatins. 18 months in oak. 4.6g/l residual sugar. A bright, uplifting style of cranberry-raspberry fruit, with a degree of lift and plenty of direction. A good starting point for a lighter, more approachable style of Amarone with neither rough edges nor excess oak (tasted blind for Decanter in London 17 Jan 2019).
