Guerrieri Rizzardi Calcarole Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2013

Guerrieri Rizzardi, Calcarole Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2013

RRP £68.49

From a solar-powered winery, Calcarole is a single vineyard on limestone soil. This is rather an elegant 2013, drinking well now. Compost and mushrooms on the nose; quite tart with dried cranberries fruit on the strike. It’s bright and energetic with light and supple tannins. Pomegranate and green peppercorns before an aromatic and rather sappy finish. Very appetising and versatile for food matching.
