Amarone Classico 2008 has maintained its typical dumping so important, “the essence of the territory” of Valpolicella without exceeding the residual sugar. It is a product with personality and great structure but which can also communicate elegance and depth in the tasting, in addition to a great complexity. 
The taste is rich and deep, elegant and powerful at the same time, still young but already very harmonious, with typical notes of cherry and blackcurrant that blend well with the wine’s complexity.
