Nicolis Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2012 750ml
Nicolis Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2012 750ml
Price: $49.99

Lush red and brambly blue fruits dance on a foundation of underbrush, peppery spices, warm tobacco, raspberry jam and touches of potpourri, cocoa and Christmas cake in this elegant, intense ’12 Amarone. As full bodied as this Amarone is, it feels supple and energetic, powering to a lingering finish marked by chewy tannins, umami undertones, and bold fruit. While you could enjoy this wine upon release, a few years in the cellar will mellow its component parts into a delicious, cohesive whole. A blend of Corvina, Rondinella and Croatina, grapes dry in small cases for three months before pressing and a slow fermentation period at low temperatures; and the wine ages for 30 months in medium-sized Slavonian oak casks, followed by eight months in bottle before release. more info
