Ca’ dei Frati, Pietro Dal Cero Amarone della Valpolicella 2013

RRP £78.85

Modern-style, barrique-aged. Almost opaque. Sooty, dark and punchy aroma with chocolate, coffee and a herbal lift of sage. Thick and rich on the strike; full-bodied, with slightly robust but nicely supportive tannins. It has a dark and burly quality, with savoury and fresher herbal notes providing a nice contrast. Rich, with prunes and dates and an attractive dry tarragon finish.
