Nicolis Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is a classic red wine gem made from the Veneto region in the northeast of Italy. The Nicolis name sums up the history of an entire family. Each member has a mission that revolves around the earth and wine. Giancarlo focuses painstaking attention on the vineyards, while Giuseppe ensures that the winemaking is expert and natural.
Nicolis Amarone is a beautiful deep dark ruby red which gradually turns into garnet. Powerful and aristocratic nose of ripe fruit, jam, sensations of cocoa, walnut, tobacco and leather. Elegant and powerful wine with a distinct spicy bouquet and with unique flavors. It shows an impressive balance between volume and smoothness, warmth and crispness, austerity and richness.
"A bright, high-toned version, with floral accents to the macerated raspberry and cherry fruit, and sleek tannins well-meshed to the mouthwatering frame. Offers a lingering finish, featuring spice and mineral notes. Drink now through 2024. 2,300 cases made, 500 cases imported."-AN, Wine Spectator, 90 points!
