Ca' La Bionda Amarone Ravazzol 2013

Available for:
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. 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.

The 2013 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Vigneti di Ravazzól shows tightness and elegance despite the general opulence and richness of this wine. Ca' la Bionda uses a blend of 70% Corvina, 20% Corvinone and 10% Rondinella and Molinara to make its Amarone. It also employs a slightly reduced appassimento with 90 days of air-drying. You feel these results thanks to the dark and intense primary fruit that appears with more freshness here. However, the wine also gracefully demonstrates its age, thanks to elegantly mature aromas of spice, tar, leather and powdered licorice. The vines are planted in limestone soils on southeast-facing terraces. Some 13,330 bottles were released.
