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


AMARONE DELLA VALPOLICELLA CLASSICO RISERVA, CAVE DI PRUN | 2008 Corvina. 15.5% alc. Imagine this was a blockbuster style with lashings of new oak, picked very ripe if not over ripe, but to be fair it has survived and even thrived ageing in bottle. It is somewhat simple however in terms of flavour profile with black fruit and oak the mainstays (tasted blind for Decanter in London 17 Jan 2019).
