Buglioni L'Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2016
Dark ruby-red in color with garnet shades. Intense and elegant aromas of ripe fruit, raisins and spices with vanilla, tobacco, cocoa and anise. Persistent, warm flavors, velvety and harmonious. This is a wine for meditation — a protagonist on its own. It is traditionally paired with game, grilled beef, stew, braised meat and mature cheeses, however, the smoothness of its dry fruit allows for modern and daring pairing…have you ever tried it with raw prawns or scampi? Serve at 18 C (65 F). Open at least one hour before serving.
Blend: 60% Corvina, 20% Corvinone, 10% Rondinella, 5% Croatina, 5% Oseleta
91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Enticing aromas of cassis, cocoa and underbrush lead the nose. The dense palate offers blackberry jam, tobacco and licorice alongside firm, polished tannins. Drink 2019–2026."
