Begali, Amarone della Valpolicella Classico, Monte Ca' Bianca, 2013

From a blend of Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella, all grown in the single Monte Ca' Bianca vineyard, and all aged in French barriques, 1/3 new, for 40 months. This has the air of a very fine wine - surprisingly like a grand Bordeaux: smart oak, superb aromatics; and intense, velvety black fruit cut by juicy acidity dancing around. Now-2029

The Begali family - 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.

Just wanted to say thank you so much for sending my order of 2 x Domaine Begude Rosé to my son and daughter-in-law - I couldn't believe that they received it within a day of my placing the order with you. That is IMPRESSIVE, especially given the current trying times.
