Variety: Corvina, Corvinella, Rondinella. Aged for 48 months in French oak tonneaux. Serving temperature 18-20°C.
Bure Alto Amarone della Valpolicella Riserva belongs to the traditional style of Amarone. Deriving from the French school, with extended and knowing use of the oak and long ageing times. Compared with the modern/international style of Amarone, the complexity achieves far broader horizons.
Dark garnet, with orange rim. An elegant, impeccably balanced red, layering sculpted tannins with finely knit flavours of plumped black cherry, plum jam, cured tobacco, dark chocolate and woody spice. A rich vein of smoky minerality sings on the lasting finish.
Food pairing: juicy steaks, roasts, grilled meats (lamb), pigeons and game, hard cheese.
Vegetarian: heavy vegetarian courses with, for example, bases made with legumes, grains, or tasty mushrooms, well-matured cheeses.
