Amarone della Valpolicella Classico "Le Quare" 2015

DOCG Amarone della Valpolicella, Veneto, Italy

Blend: 50% Corvina, 30% Corvinone, 15% Rondinella, 5% Molinara | 15% ABV

£37.00

We are delighted to offer this Italian red wine made from a blend of Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella, and Molinara grapes from the Veneto region. Amarone is naturally a big, bold, and rich wine as it is produced by partially dried grapes. However Gamba's Amarone has some lovely balance to it and though it is mouth-filling and dense, it also has impressive freshness which lifts it up.

Guide to icons

Dark red in colour with a potent nose of vanilla, cherry and dried flowers. The palate is full bodied, intense with bold acidity and velvety tannins. It finishes on fresh pipe tobacco, spice and some cedar notes.

Service: Serve at 19°C.

Food Pairing: The Amarone wine matches perfectly with roasted or grilled meat and game. To be tasted also with cheese and dishes garnished with truffle.

The winemaker and owner Martino Aldrighetti is in charge of the winery and the processes.

“Our wines including the Amarone are different to those of other winemakers because we only use natural yeasts in the fermenting process and not commercially produced yeasts. We produce unique and inimitable wines with thanks to the peculiarities of our land. When people taste or drink our wines, we want them to say 'This is Gamba' because they recognise the uniqueness of our wines -that is my dream" Says Martino.

The winery was set up in 2003 by the three brothers Giovanni, Giuseppe and Martino Aldrighetti in order to make their dreams come true.

They started to make wine by using only the grapes from their own vineyards, designing their own label “Gamba” which is actually the traditional family nickname.

The winery lies in the heart the Valpolicella Classica wine region and it owns 15 hectares of vineyards set out on terraces on the rolling hills at about 300 meters above sea level, Clayey and calcareous soil.
