Pietro Clementi Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2011

Pietro Clementi, Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2011

RRP N/A in UK

This is a beautifully balanced wine, all too easy to finish the bottle – whatever your stylistic preferences. Aged for six years in large Salvonian botti, it has a youthful hue for 2011. Rich, but elegantly wafting aroma of black pepper, anise and ground ginger, and a touch of wood smoke. Velvety smooth to start, it becomes lighter, more airy and energetic with herbs replacing the spices. It has silky intensity, vivacity and persistence.
