2015 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 'La Rosta'
There’s an alluring richness to the 2015 Amarone della Valpolicella La Rosta that keeps you coming back to the glass with a display of ripe plums, gingery spice, rum cake and molasses. It’s velvety in texture yet balanced with a zing of bright acids and sour citrus, adding a high-energy feel. Tart Carménère and blackberries linger, along with peppery inner florals and bitter baker’s chocolate. There’s a lot of tension here to offset La Rosta’s confectionary persona, making for a pleasurable experience full of contrasts.
