Ca dei Maghi, Amarone della Valpolicella Classico. 2015
Ca dei Maghi is a small farm in the hills of Valpolicella making very small quantities of the most exquisite wines. Although started in the 1950's it is only since 2011 when Paolo Creazzi took over the reins that this estate has gone from being 'good' to outstanding. Each year he seeks to express classical Valpolicella at its very best while his natural inclination to experiment and try new things is shown in the small range of IGT wines produced.
The grapes are harvested by hand in the second decade of October and pressed at the end of January. Fermentation takes place in steel tanks, then the wine rests for five years first in big oak barrels and then again in steel tanks until bottling.
Intense red colour with light garnet tinges. Intense aroma with hints of cherry under spirit and sweet spices. Full-bodied, well-structured, lasting and harmonious flavour. Excellent with aged cheese. It combines very good also with grilled, roasted and boiled meat as well as bitter chocolate.
This Amarone is a classic blend of Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella, Molinara
