DUE TORRI AMARONE DELLA VALPOLICELLA CLASSICO 2008
A fantastic Amarone!
On the nose chocolate, cherry, raisins, coffee.
On the palate dry, with hint of sweetness, rich aromas replays on the palate. Very intense. Tannins are soft and the acidity is nicely balanced. Full bodied with long and fruity finish
We had in another glass of
Giacomo Montresor Fondatore Amarone della Valpolicella 2008
Also it was very nice. And it was very interesting! Same year, but different wine. Even in the glass it wasn't as rich as previous one.
Dark ruby-red color, floral, dried fruit cherry, chocolate and cedar aromas and flavours.
On the palate dry, full bodied, with balanced acidity but more pronounced. Firm tannins and good length.
A little minerality, pomegranate, floral notes and mint. Little less intensity than Duetorri.
Both wines were wonderful, subtle and delicious, but
the first one was softer, jucier. Different cheeses tasted opposite with those two wines.
