Description

Amarone is the most full-bodied of all Italian wines, this one that former All Black John Kirwan imports weighing in at a whopping 16.5% alcohol. It's made from a blend of 50% Corvinone, 20% Corvina, 20% Rondinella with the remaining 10%, marked "other" with a classic Italian shrug of the shoulders. The grapes are dried on racks in the classical fashion to concentrate the sugars, the wine spending 1 years in barrique and then a further 2 years in gigantic 25hL oak barrels. A decadent and velvety wine, this is a gorgeous example of a legendary Italian wine style.

Smells

Big, cuddly and jammy nose of cherries, blackberries, vanilla and exotic spices.

Tastes

Voluptuous and full-bodied, with a dense core of dark fruit, raisins, coffee and chocolate, the finish is long, velvety and sensuous. Well done, JK. we're excited to have another Amarone of this quality for NZ drinkers to enjoy! Now to 2030.
