Bertani Amarone della Valpolicella 2009
|Region||Italy, Veneto, Amarone della Valpolicella|

An elegant red, medium- to full-bodied and mineral-driven, offering hints of tar-tinged smoke and cured tobacco as a savory foil for the wild cherry and singed orange-peel flavors. Fresh and well-knit, with fine-grained tannins emerging on the lightly spiced finish. Drink now through 2029. 6,500 cases made, 3,600 cases imported.
