Giuseppe Lonardi, Amarone Classico D.O.C.
(ah-mah-ROH-nay dayla vahl-pohl-ee-CHAY-lah KLAH-see-ko)


Tasting Notes: Matured for 22 months in French barriques, it is a neo-classic Italian wine that will age for 15 years, and a very limited production. Of all the wines of Italia, none is more breath-takingly unique than the wine of Verona called Amarone. And, in our opinion, few make it better than Giuseppe Lonardi. His Amarone is remarkably port-like and very concentrated, with powerful, heady aromas of dried fruit potpourri, chocolate, cedar chest, and exotic spice. The production is micro, and it shows in this luxurious, breathtaking wine. That is one reason why this monumental wine will age for 30+ years.
