Valentina Cubi Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Riserva 2006

Valentina Cubi, Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Riserva 2006

RRP £90

A full, rich, more traditional style from this 10ha estate. This was barrel-matured for 7 years, and at 17%, it’s no weakling. A wine for a winter’s night. Alluring aroma of garden compost, cigar box and molten chocolate. It enters with attitude and swaggers across the palate, rich, full and bold. Sweet supportive tannins. Has heft, but knows how to carry it.
