Special Case Offer Amarone 2008 Luigi Righetti
Amarone is a deep ruby red with a complex nose that emphasises dried fruit and almonds with a hint of liquorice. The flavours are a almost sweet with dark berry plum and raisin, and a very smooth finish. This is a very big wine in flavour and alcohol and a top quality wine at a great price.
A family run business established in 1909. The wine is made from Corvina grapes which are traditionally dried for 100 days, over the winter months. Then aged in oak barrels.
Try with game or mature cheeses.
Serve at room temperature (17-18℃) better if decanted.
This wine is drinking well now but will continue to develop over the coming decade
