Villa Mattielli – Amarone Della Valpolicella 2012
Villa Mattielli is a family-owned estate located in the hills of eastern of Verona. The thirty hectares of vineyards, some of which date back to 1900s, thrive in the unique terroir that benefits from a mild climate and a good sun exposure. It is currently managed by the fourth generation winemaker, Roberta, aided by her husband Giacomo and her sister Valeria.
Intense ruby-garnet colour. Ethereal nose of small red fruits, blackberries, currants and cherries in alcohol. Scents of vanilla, tobacco and spices, imparted by a delicate earthy fragrance. Complex on the palate with a lovely mineral imprint, and soft and smooth tannins. Warm, long-lasting finish with reminiscences of prunes. Suggested food pairings: game dishes, braised meat, stew and aged cheeses.
