Luigi Righetti Capitel de Roari Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico Red Blend Wine 2014 is the result of drying the grapes for 3 to 5 months before pressing. Capitel de Roari is Righetti's premium Amarone, coming from the best grape selection, and receiving delicate oak treatment. It is a well-balanced Amarone that still exhibits much of the dark fruit flavors, earth, and meaty components expected of this DOC.
Intense and earthy aromas join aromas of black cherry and prunes. Stewed plums and dusty earth are situated against more savory elements of black olives and tarragon. A sweet attack has counterbalanced by bracing acidity and power that drives a long finish completely dry. It has bottled at 14.5% alcohol by volume and pairs well with bolognese, cheese, good match with beef or lamb dishes. It is best to drink it with Osso Bucco. Enjoy!
