Zyme Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2015Northern Italy /Amarone della Valpolicella /Valpolicella Blend
"The 2015 Amarone della Valpolicella bursts from the glass with a ripe and extroverted display of cherries dipped in dark chocolate, offset by hints of balsamic spice and sweet mint. It’s rich and deeply textural, with vibrant acidity lending lift as ripe red and purple-tinged fruits flesh out, leaving a subtle coating of fine tannins in their wake. Nothing is out of place here in this pleasure-bomb of a wine, which shows the ripeness of the vintage yet never falls out of balance. The Amarone is one of the most classic wines from the Zyme portfolio. A blend of traditional grapes are dried for three months, then crushed, fermented and macerated for another two months before being matured in large Slavonian oak for five years."
