AMARONE DELLA VALPOLICELLA, LE CORTE DEL POZZO

AMARONE DELLA VALPOLICELLA CLASSICO, MARTA GALLI | 2008 60% Corvina, 20% each Corvinone and Rondinella. 16% alcohol. Aged in Slavonian oak. Bold, rich, ripe aromas. Black currant and licorice on the palate, with some evidence of baked fruit too. Plenty to get your teeth into, therefore, and by no means over the hill (tasted blind for Decanter in London 17 Jan 2019).
