Brunelli Amarone Campo Dei Titari Riserva 2016 from 8wines
Cellar for up to 10 years. Decant 2 hours before serving. The Brunelli family have lived amongst the gentle rolling hills of the Valpolicella wine region since at least the 18th century. For generations the family worked the land of a noble family from Verona, slowly purchasing parts of the estate over the years. Finally in 1936 they were able to achieve their dream of making their own wines under the Brunelli label. These days the estate is looked after by Luigi and Luciana along with their son Alberto who have dedicated themselves to preserve the region’s little-known indigenous grape varieties and traditional winemaking techniques. Their flagship Amarone wine, the Campo del Titari, is a careful composition of local Corvina, Rondinella, and Oseleta varieties which the family makes only in the very best vintages in limited quantities. This bold, characterful wine is made with carefully selected grapes which are harvested at optimal ripeness and then left to dry over the winter to intensify their flavours. The grapes are then slowly fermented and matured in large oak casks for 48 months to add a delicious spicy character. On the nose fragrant hints of smoky tobacco, cacao and vanilla gently mingle with dried fruit, brandied cherries and plum jam aromas. The first sip is incredibly smooth and well-rounded with a firm structure, balancing freshness and seductive ripe berry flavours. It is recommended to decant this wine at least two hours before you plan to serve it to reveal all of its delicate nuances and subtleties.
