Amarone della Valpolicella Docg “Case Vecie” by Brigaldara
Amarone Case Vecie borrows its name from the homonymous vineyard located in Grezzana – Valpantena. An extraordinary plot of land planted with vines where altitude and exposition enable the grapes to undergo a slow and constant ripening, even during the hardest years. The late harvesting period enables us to put the grapes to dry in a colder period of the year, undergoing a slower and longer drying process. Amarone Case Vecie is a wine that is designed to enhance the natural characteristics of a high altitude climate: a true Amarone “Vigne Alte” – a high-hill Amarone.
Tasting notes: Deep ruby. Very ripe, almost roasted nose of dried cranberry, kirsch, brown spices, figs macerated in sugar syrup and botanical herbs. Then fresher and suave, with clean and precise flavours of cinnamon, pepper, tobacco and pot pourri. Finishes long with young, chewy but polished tannins.
