Luigi Righetti Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico
Luigi Righetti Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico is deep ruby-red, with a complex nose dominated by dried fruits. Full bodied on the palate, the big, cherry and prune flavours in the mouth give way to a rich, smooth finish. Although this will continue to evolve in the bottle for several years yet, we really enjoy drinking it now and enjoying all of its delicious dried fruit flavours.

Luigi Righetti Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico is made from the best selection of fruit grown in Righetti's Valpolicella vineyards. The grapes were gently dried for around five months in the loft of the winery before being pressed and aged in oak.
Why we like this wine
Christmas cake in a glass. These days, the alcohol levels of some Amarone are just getting stupid and as well as marring the flavour of the fruit, they also attract a higher alcohol duty from HMRC. This is spot on with an alcohol level of 15%, loads of dried fruit character and a perfect balance with the acid levels to refresh the palate. It's just the thing to while away the time into the wee small hours and still allows you to get up with a clear head in the morning. So long as you have just one bottle that is!!
- Well balanced and not too alcoholic
- True Amarone character
- A great cheese wine - especially Parmesan
- Ideal with game too
