This wine is a deep ruby red tending towards garnet. The nose is rich and complex with aromas of sour cherries, blackberries, tobacco and candied fruits. The palate is rich and intense with similar fruit characters, fine tannins and exceptional length. This is a wine that will not leave you indifferent. Food Pairing: Ideally this wine goes with red meats such as char-grilled steak, slow-cooked stews and game or it can be simply sipped and savoured in "meditation" as we say in Italy.

Wine AdvocateThe 2011 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Vigneti di Ravazzól offers a classic interpretation of air-dried red grapes (appassimento) from Northeast Italy. Despite the obvious opulence and voluptuousness you should expect from Amarone, this wine is slightly more streamlined and focused next to its peers. It offers its own unique elegance. Sweet fruit flavors segue to dark Christmas spice, barbecue smoke and Spanish cedar. You will appreciate the more tempered personality of this blended red (70% Corvina, 20% Corvinone and 10% Rondinella).
