Brunelli Amarone Campo Inferi Riserva 2016
Brunelli Amarone Campo Inferi Riserva 2016 from 8wines
Cellar for up to 15 years. Decant 2 hours before serving. Sweet dark chocolate, raisins and roasted coffee bean aromas erupt out of the glass, while the palate is dominated by crushed redcurrants, plums and cherry liqueur with undertones of dried herbs and figs. Full bodied with a sumptuously rich mouthfeel, the Campo Inferi Amarone has a firm structure with endless layers of complexity which slowly reveal themselves over the course of an evening. This voluptuous and multifaceted Amarone is an ideal choice to savour over an elegant dinner with loved ones or close friends. Choose a hearty meat dish like a prime cut of steak, beef goulash or even a delicate guinea fowl served with truffles to tease out the earthy, herbal character of this unique wine. Only made in small quantities in the best vintages, Campo Inferi Amarone is named after the steep, inaccessible vineyard where the indigenous Corvina Veronese, Rondinella and Corvinone grapes are sourced. The Brunelli family have been working this land for generations and know just how to capture the essence of this unique site. Following ancient local winemaking practices, the grapes are carefully selected and dried over the winter to concentrate their flavours before vinification. The young Amarone is then matured in large oak casks for 48 months followed by 12 months of maturation in the bottle.
