Amarone della Valpolicella - Winery Brunelli Wine

CAMPO INFERI | AMARONE DELLA VALPOLICELLA RISERVA
Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita

WINE PROFILE

This Riserva’s somewhat forbidding name describes the efforts required to reach this steep and almost inaccessible vineyard, as well as the determination necessary to tame and cultivate it. The Riserva Campo Inferi is a feminine expression of Amarone, made in limited quantities (5000 bottles) only in the best years. Its spirit is that of one who loves even when fatigued. This magnificently sumptuous rarity is elegant, intense and characterized by an intriguing scent of damp earth.

TASTING NOTES
Campo Inferi reveals a deep ruby color with a faintly amber rim. In its sophisticated and elegantly refined bouquet one finds notes of sweet cocoa and roasted coffee beans. Its flavor is warm and mouth-filling, and evokes melted chocolate and cherries preserved in brandy: it is full-bodied and velvety. The aftertaste is satisfying, sumptuous and persistent.
SERVING SUGGESTIONS
Enjoy our Campo Inferi on its own or as an ideal accompaniment for main courses of grilled, braised or stewed red meats. It is also delicious with game, guinea fowl with truffles, or with mature cheeses. Serve at 18°C (64°F), opening the bottle two hours beforehand.
