Corte Rugolin Amarone 2001

Corte Rugolin, Amarone della Valpolicella DOC, Classico, Vigna “Monte Danieli” 2001

The nose is fetching in its liquer-like essence with a bit of volatility amping up the fruitiness. The mouth is quite luscious, rich and in dried fruits and extract. – very mouth-filling and long. The previous vintage displayed a complex nose inlcuding oak and brown spices while the mouth showed us very soft, smooth tannins. The grapes behind this wine are Corvina, Rondinella Molinara. Estate Botted in Valgatara in the commune of Marano 15.5% $49.95 at Traverso’s
