La Giaretta 2017 Amarone della Valpolicella

$ 37.99
La Giaretta Amarone della Valpolicella 
The process of making Amarone, drying the estate's top grapes on straw mats for 120+ days is a labor intensive and expensive one, so it's rare that we come across a good Amarone under the $50 mark. At just $38, the La Giaretta is an absolute steal. The aromas jump from the glass capturing your attention with roses raisins prunes, leather, french strawberry tart and cherry cobbler, rum raisin cake, lemon zest, lillies and caramel. Crisp clear dark deep burgundy and plentiful legs. The palate revealed licorice, plum, chocolate with a fresh cigar just lit on the finish which lingered nicely.
