2015 AMARONE DELLA VALPOLICELLA, Vigna Garzon, Pieropan. Veneto

Bin:  630

Alcohol percentage:  16.5%

Area:

Valpolicella’s vineyards are close to Verona, in north east Italy. Pieropan’s vineyards are situated in the Cellore d’Illasi hills, at around 400m altititude

Grape variety:

60% Corvina/Corvinone , 15% Croatina, 15% Rondinella, 10% Other Native Red Varietals

Producer:

The Pieropan family has been producing wines in Soave since the 1860s. They were the first producer to bottle a wine with the name Soave on the label, in the early 1930s. Nino Pieropan took over from his father in 1970 and his two sons, Andrea and Dario, now work with him running the estate. It was their idea to buy (in 1999) red wine vineyards in neighbouring Valpolicella

Old Bridge rating:

Amarone is an Italian classic, often imitated, rarely equalled. But only the best producers can balance the intensity of air-dried grapes with elegance and freshness

Food match:

Cheese, venison, mutton – just make sure there is plenty of flavour on the plate
