Recchia Ca’ Bertoldi
Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico 2011
This family estate was founded in 1906 by Giovanni Battista Recchia, his grandsons Riccardo and Roberto took it on the 70’s and have brought it from a very modest 5 hectares to 30 all situated in the heart of the classic Valpolicella appellation. The Ca’ Bertoldi is one of their single vineyard special selection wines.
A really full nose with all the rich dried fruit that’s so typical of Amarone, but also loads of really fresh ripe plum, black cherries and smokiness. On the palate this is lush and full of tart plummy fruit, with balanced oak, great acidity and velvet tannin. It will develop in time, transforming all that rich ripe fruit and flavour, but at the moment should be enjoyed for the sheer joy of it’s lusciousness. Amarone at it’s voluptuous, decadent best - can be enjoyed with a really rich oxtail stew or rich braised meat.
