Pietro Zardini "Pietro Junior" Amarone della Valpolicella Classico DOCG 2019

Pietro Zardini Pietro Junior Amarone della Valpolicella Classico DOCG has an intense ruby red colour with garnet tints. Refined nose with clean aromas of plum, vanilla, coffee, cacao and spices. Elegant full-bodied palate that is warm, enveloping and balanced by solid tannins. Tastes like plums soaked in brandy with layers of cherry, chocolate powder, coffee and black pepper. Closes in a persistent finish with a wonderful effect.

70% Corvina, 20% Rondinella and 10% Molinara. The fruit comes from Pietro Zardini's high hillside vineyards in the Valpolicella Classico production zone. The vines grow in prevalently red and brown soils on detritus, marl and basalt.

Special selection and hand picking of the grapes into trays. The grapes are dried for 3–4 months. Traditional fermentation of the skins with maceration for 4–5 weeks. The wine ages in oak barrels and barriques for 3 years, subsequently in steel and bottle before release.

Ageing potential: Drink now or within 10–12 years from vintage.
