Covalli Amarone Della Valpolicella D.O.C.G. 2018 750mL  JS91 Points-JAMES SUCKLING

Intense red colour with garnet flecks, typical aroma with hints of red fruit jam, spicy finish and full velvety body.
Food pairings: All rich style cousine, strongly flavoured meats, aged cheeses.
Vineyard Is Situated in the hills of the northern part of Verona.
Grape varieties:
50% Corvina Veronese 30% Corvinone 15% Rondinella 5% Cabernet
The carefully selected grapes are put in small plastic crates and dried in ventilated rooms for about three months. When they reach the perfect grade of dryness they are pressed and fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. The fermentation lasts for about 30 days and develops high alcohol contents. After a period in concrete tanks, where it undergoes Malolactic Fermentation, the wine is transferred to large oak casks of medium and large size for minimum 3 years. After bottling the wine refines for at least 6 months.
Soil composition: Clay, calcareous.


"Aromas and flavors of plum compote here with some spicy oak notes. Quite full-bodied with grainy, fruit-coated tannins and a savory and spicy finish."
