2013 Accordini Amarone Le Bessole
Amarone is called the king of the Italian wines and it is considered as one of the best wines in the world. It is a noble and complex wine.
Terroir is everything. The Amarone comes from Valpolicella, a valley located East of Verona, and produced from 4 grape varieties: Corvina (Corvina Veronese and Corvinone), Rondinella and Rossignola.
There are only 5,000 hectares that can boast the label Amarone DOCG. It’s about stony terrains rich of salt minerals such as the Cru “Le Bessole”, located in Colline di Morona, a hilly area between San Pietro in Cariano and Negrar.
The specification (the law that regulates the Amarone production) is very strict: it states that the production of grapes must not exceed 12 tons per hectare.
Amarone is a noble wine with a unique and different personality from year to year.
A great character and personality, the wine boasts an intense garnet color, black cherry and raspberry aromas, spicy notes and liquorice. The mouth is full and persistent, soft and smooth with a good structure. A precious and elegant Amarone, drinkable in every situation, glass after glass.
