Le Salette Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Pergole Vece 2016
A special, unique wine dedicated to meditation and special occasions, intense and powerful, but at the same time elegant and balanced.

Bouquet

Thick dark cherries, deep aromatic and sugar concentration together with a powerful structure and a good acidity.

Flavour

The elegance and the silky texture overwhelm the powerful tannins. The balsam intensity of the wine – ginger coffee licorice and spices, hummus, eucalyptus and dried rosemary – gives enormous lift to the bouquet. It has the structure, acidity and balanced fleshiness for long cellar ­ aging.

Pairing

Roasted and grilled meats, game, aged cheese (such as parmigiano, or aged asiago); wine for meditation (to be consumed alone, after a meal).
