Roccolo Grassi Amarone della Valpolicella 2015

Roccolo Grassi, Amarone della Valpolicella 2015

RRP £66.21

Roccolo Grassi makes modern-style, muscular Amarone aged in French barriques, and the 50% new oak shows – in a good way. Big, bold aroma with dried figs, nutmeg, walnuts and orange zest. Dense and compact, it punches on the palate and ccarries the high level of alcohol with an abundance of tannin providing freshness and ballast. Thick, glossy and chunky texture. This will go on forever. Indestructible.
