Tezza, DOCG Amarone della Valpolicella ValpantenaRegular price €47.00
This wine was awarded a CROWN (the highest possible award) in the Vinibuoni d'Italia wine guide.
The Tezzas make terrific wines. This Amarone has typical dark ruby colour in the glass and ripe, complex aromas of blackberry and plum with a whole host of secondary elements making up its complex character.
Liquorice, dark chocolate and coffee, leather and spice develop on the nose and palate in a powerful experience from the cousins' organic vineyards in the north of Italy. Reduced yields from sunny sites in the Valpantena sub-region add extra polish to the popular Amarone style, whose intense dark fruit appeal comes from the concentrated juice of the dried grapes used to make it.
