CORTE SAN BENEDETTO AMARONE DELLA VAPOLICELLA CLASSICO 2012
60% Corvina, 20% Corvinone, 20% Rondinella. Rich aromas of kirsch, plums and spice. The palate is powerful, warm and expressive with a lovely cherry jam character. This is an altogether ethereal example with a memorable finish.
“A pretty thread of dried herbs punctuates an otherwise dried fruit-driven nose of blackcurrant compote, sugar-coated oranges and glazed cherries. The alcohol is noticeably potent, but there’s a finely woven structure of chewy tannins to account for that and the fruit remains fresh and on point.
This young family-run winery was born in 2006 with the help of their father Mariano when two brothers Angelo and Loris decided to continue the activity initiated in 1956 by their grandfather Angelo. As they currently run the winery using their own grapes, Loris, with a degree in oenology, works in the cellar and is responsible for winemaking, while Angelo takes care of the accounts and customer relations. Mariano then, with a long-mature-acquired experience throughout the years, ensures cultivation in the vineyard. A portion of about 18 hectares of the vineyard is cultivated from which all typical wines of the zone are produced, namely Amarone, Recioto, Valpolicella and Ripasso.
