Begali, Amarone della Valpolicella Classico, 2015

Classic, larger-than-life Amarone: very deep tone; savoury aromas of leather and spice over black fruit; and then a rich mouthful of autumnal, black fruit compote. Attractive meatiness and a correct dry finish. Amarone is a wonderful wine to sip with hard cheese (for example aged Cheddar) at the end of a meal, rather like port - but in Verona they will serve a carafe of Amarone with a steak or venison and it's hugely successful. Now-2027

The Begali family is one of the founding members of Le Famiglie Storiche, the historic families of Amarone, an association formed in 2009 to promote high quality Amarone, with its own high standards for production. Father Lorenzo, son Giordano and daughter Tiliana - farm 10 hectares just east of Lake Garda. Although small, this is a top Valpolicella estate, having won numerous Tre Bicchieri awards in Gambero Rosso, but with very fair pricing.

We offer two examples of the famed Amarone style, made from selected bunches of grapes dried in the autumn to concentrate the sugars and dry extract. In this country Amarone is often drunk to accompany hard cheese at the end of a meal (and it's great with well-aged cheddar) but in Verona you find restaurants serving it by the carafe to accompany red meats. It's a stunning and unique style.

Our favourite wine merchant never fails to delight. Delicious wines at every price point - including a few gems below £10 in our favourites list. We’ve really enjoyed the sun case as an easy way to be introduced to new wines which we’ve then reordered. Friendly informative service completes the package.
