The full tasting notes for the 2016 vintage of this wine are coming soon; here's what I say about the 2015 which is still in stock:
"The first sniff of this wine gives clues to its complexity with black cherries, ripe plums, herbal and savoury notes. Rondinella adds floral notes to the aromas, Corvina brings elegance, aromas and acidity with Corvinone contributing colour, tannins and higher sugar levels. On tasting you will find a medium-bodied which coats the mouth beautifully with its concentrated fruit flavours; there is a long finish of cherries with a hint of warm spices such as cinnamon and raisins. The acidity is quite high which means that despite the fruits and full body, this is not a heavy wine at all. Tannins are very soft and the wine lovely and smooth.
This wine will keep on developing for two or three years in bottle, becoming richer and its flavours moving towards the Amarone dried fruit flavour profile. In the interim it is very drinkable and amazingly concentrated."
The producer suggests consuming this wine with grilled lamb cutlets, fillet or sirloin of beef, stews, casseroles and hard, aged cheese. It would also work well with roasted meat, game dishes slightly sweet dishes, most cheeses, cured meats and also with savoury dishes flavoured with lemon. Also delicious on its own
