A towering, blockbuster Italian red wine made from grapes grown in a single vineyard, and a blend of 55% Corvinone, 25% Corvina and 20% Rondinella grapes. The wine was aged 2 years Slavonian oak barrels. Aromas of blackberries, smoke, cigar box and spice. Pair with roast beef.

Amarone Della Valpolicella food pairings: veal roast, slow-cooked brisket of beef, rabbit fricassee, rich meaty lasagne.

Reviews and Ratings

Wineboy rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

unusual (for Amarone) aromas of candied cherries and wine gums. lovely mouthfeel, rhubarb flavours.
Brigaldara Cavolo 2013 is a dry and rich single-vineyard Amarone Della Valpolicella blend of 55% Corvinone with 25% Corvina and 20% Rondinella sourced from the Veneto wine region. The wine was aged four years, two years in French in barrique with two years in Slavonian oak barrels. Juicy berry fruit and florals on the palate, pair this Amarone with a sun-dried tomato sauce and meaty pasta dish. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
