Sartori I Saltari Amarone della Valpolicella 2012

Sartori, I Saltari Amarone della Valpolicella 2012

RRP £37

Slightly more traditional style. Woodland aromas with earl grey tea, nutmeg and cocoa. Nicely balanced on the palate, where the richness of sweet dried fig is offset by savoury liquorice and bayleaf. There is fresh earthiness, tannic grip and tension here, with green peppercorns on the rich and freshly vibrant finish. Decant.
