Campagnola Amarone Classico 2017
Deep bright, ruby red colour with violet edge. Powerful bouquet and intense aromas of cherry, ripe plum, toasted almond and vanilla. Full-bodied wine with round and rich flavor.
Corvina Veronese and Corvinone Veronese 75%, Rondinella 25%. Bunches are hand picked and rigorously selected at the end of September.
Selected hillside vineyards, in Marano di Valpolicella valley, planted in calcareous soil at 200-350 mt o.s.l. Traditional natural drying of the grapes starting at the end of September for about 100 days with a natural loss of 35-40% of the weight.
Soft pressing of the grapes in December/January, followed by a 30 days maceration on the skins.
60% of the wine is refined for 24 months in big oak bar-rels by 25-30-50 hl, and 40% of the wine is refined for 18 months in new French barriques from Allier oak, then 6 months in the bottle.
AWARDS & ACCOLADES
Intense, nutty dried-fruit character on the nose with hints of red licorice and dried flowers. Full-to medium-bodied with silky tannins that are drenched in the fruit flavors. Nicely balanced, forward drive to the long, long finish. Subtler structure for an Amarone, but very skillfully crafted.
