Amarone della Valpolicella - Winery Brunelli Wine

VALPOLICELLA CLASSICO SUPERIORE
Denominazione di Origine Controllata

WINE PROFILE

Made from specially selected bunches of the four indigenous Valpolicella grape varieties (predominantly Corvina Veronese) and aged for 15 months in traditional Slavonian oak casks, this wine offers greater body and richer, mellower fruit than the Valpolicella Classico. Its elegant bouquet of plums, almonds and violets and well-balanced, persistent flavour make it excellent with grilled, roast or braised red meat dishes. It pairs perfectly with mushroom-based dishes and medium-aged cheeses.
