Amarone della Valpolicella La Giuva 2017

£60.00

Out of stock

The estate was founded by Alberto Malesani, famous in Italy as a former manager of both Fiorentina and Parma.  La Giuva’s estate covers 10 hectares (five hectares of which are in production) in a cool site in the Val Squaranto, a small valley between the Valpantena and the valley of Mezzane.

With a complex and ethereal nose, this Amarone has aromatic notes of cherries, blueberries and chocolate, combined with hints of sweet spice. Smooth and powerful, the palate is remarkably fresh and finishes with ripe fruit.

Game meat and all slow-cooked dishes find their ideal contrast with this wine – braised beef, pulled pork and barbecue glazed ham will all pair beautifully.  Amarone is considered by some an excellent “meditation” wine, so its best companion may well be a relaxing atmosphere and the right frame of mind!
