Ca dei Maghi, Amarone della Valpolicella Riserva, Canova (gold label) 2015
Get to know: Ca dei Maghi, Amarone della Valpolicella Riserva, Canova
The notes of red fruit steeped in spirits, typical of the style, alternate with notes of rhubarb, tobacco, cinnamon and touches of cinchona at the finish. On the palate, the wine is enveloping and structured. An absolute treat for the senses.
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.
This Amarone is a classic blend of Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella, Molinara dried for 3/4 months before pressing and ageing for 60 months in large barrels.
