Aromas suggesting mature dark-skinned berry, pipe tobacco, new leather and cedar slowly emerge on this concentrated red. The dense, round palate delivers raspberry jam, chocolate covered cherry, nutmeg and mocha framed in velvety tannins and surprising freshness.
Grape Types: Corvina, Rondinella, Corvinoni
Accordini Amarone Riserva “Le Viole” 2005 is made from 70% Corvina and Corvinoni, 20% Rondinella, 10% Rossignola.
The wine is aged 60 months in oak barrels, then aged 24 months in tank, and another 6 months in the bottle before release.
This Riserva is a deep red with violet overlays in the glass, which is where the name Le Viole stems from. A more elegant expression then their standard Amarone. Complex nose of licorice, tobacco, blueberries and vanilla from the oak aging. Concentrated and balanced on the palate with well rounded and elegant tannins which give this Amarone great depth.
Braised meats and hearty stews.
