This Amarone Classico has an elegant ruby red color.
In the nose there are lively aromas of, for example, plums and rich espresso in the cold morning light. In addition, there are hints of rose petals in tamarind juice.
Firstly, the Amarone Classico has dry tannins that are above all perfectly matched to the depth of the fruit. The wine dissolves in the mouth, as it were. But it still gives shape and direction. Finally, the fruit, typical of the wines of Cà Dei Maghi, fills the mouth with juice. The juiciness in combination with the lightness of the wine make this Amarone so unique. That is why it is well liked by real Amarone enthusiasts, but also by people who usually do not like Amarone.
The pronounced body and taste sensation of this Amarone come into its own in combination with meat with present flavors, such as hare or lamb. In addition, it is a wine that lends itself well to combinations with meat from the barbecue.
