Amarone della Valpolicella has got to be the ultimate in indulgent wine. Made with grapes that are dried for 90 days, it's unbelievably rich, concentrated and opulent. This lovely example from Lamberti has a deep colour and inviting aromas of damson preserve, dried fruits and fragrant herbs. The palate is equally rewarding - brimming with raisiny, plummy flavours, dark chocolate, a lick of spice and a lingering aftertaste of toasted almonds. Savour and enjoy with a really good cheeseboard, or some fresh game.
18 months in oak casks; at the same time part of the wine develops for a year in French oak barriques. There follows a stay of 4 months in bottle to further raise the level of quality.
