Brolo dei Giusti Amarone della Valpolicella 2011

Brolo dui Giusti, Amarone della Valpolicella 2011

RRP £51

A special project, blending fruit from three vineyards, by co-op Cantina Valpantina. Unusually, just one year in large Slavonian oak and two in concrete. The result is a very supple wine of fresh fig sweetness and deeper raisin notes. Rich, supple glide onto the palate via satin, soft tannins. Sumptuous and softly indulgent, this is full, yet quite airy, and not too heavy. The fruity medjool date richness envelops the palate while the long finish is scented with aromatics of fennel and aniseed. Lovely now.
