Description

Wine Enthusiast 

This opens with aromas of ripe dark-skinned fruit, new leather and a balsamic note. The concentrated palate offers black-currant jam, licorice, clove and tobacco alongside fine-grained tannins. Kerin O’Keefe 

 

 Wine Advocate

The 2011 vintage was scorching hot and dry, producing even more powerful and opulent wines from Valpolicella. The 2011 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Morar is a bold wine for sure, with dark fruit flavors all painted in very thick brush strokes. The bouquet peels back to reveal inky black fruit with spicy smoke, tar and barbecue rub. The blend is 65% Corvina, 10% Rondinella and 25% Corvinone, and the wine does 95 days of appassimento. A shorter dehydration time such as this is well suited to the hot conditions of the growing season, but you still get a bold 17% alcohol content here nonetheless. Some 12,000 bottles were made.

Characteristics Garnet red color. Perfumed and elegant, with red cherry and plum notes, hints of dark chocolate and tobacco. Great freshness and succulence on the palate, with lovely tannic grip and a red dried fruits finish. 
Pairing Roasts, aged cheeses and game. Great alone after a meal or with some dark chocolate.
