Speri Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Sant’Urbano D.O.C.G. 2015 75cl

Supremely Italian, Guaranteed

Speri brings you the high¬≠est qual¬≠i¬≠ty Amarone del¬≠la Valpo¬≠li¬≠cel¬≠la wine from the Monte Sant‚ÄôUrbano vine¬≠yard. It is an extra¬≠or¬≠di¬≠nary wine with great com¬≠plex¬≠i¬≠ty and struc¬≠ture, the height of ele¬≠gance and quality. 

TAST­ING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

Amarone del¬≠la Valpo¬≠li¬≠cel¬≠la appears deep gar¬≠net red in col¬≠or, with an ethe¬≠re¬≠al bou¬≠quet of dried fruit like plum and black cher¬≠ry. It is a rare, force¬≠ful wine, one that lends itself well to aging. Amarone means ‚Äč‚Äúthe great bit¬≠ter‚ÄĚ. Grapes giv¬≠en this name are har¬≠vest¬≠ed in Octo¬≠ber, then allowed to dry on straw mats in order to con¬≠cen¬≠trate the sug¬≠ars and fla¬≠vors before press¬≠ing. The result¬≠ing wine is full-bod¬≠ied, fill¬≠ing, warm, and dry at once on the palate. Matured first in French oak casks, then Slavon¬≠ian ones, before rest¬≠ing in bot¬≠tles‚ÄČ‚ÄĒ‚ÄČa process that lasts four and a half years‚ÄČ‚ÄĒ‚ÄČthe Amarone del¬≠la Valpo¬≠li¬≠cel¬≠la well deserves its DOCG appel¬≠la¬≠tion, the high¬≠est cer¬≠tifi¬≠cate of qual¬≠i¬≠ty in Italy.

PAIR­INGS

The robust¬≠ness of Amarone wine makes it ide¬≠al for drink¬≠ing with a steak or stew din¬≠ner. In the Vene¬≠to region, in par¬≠tic¬≠u¬≠lar, it is often paired with offal and game meat, as well as pas¬≠ta and bean dish¬≠es. Duck goes par¬≠tic¬≠u¬≠lar¬≠ly well with Amarone, espe¬≠cial¬≠ly with a sauce made from a reduc¬≠tion of the same wine. This is a wine that will go well with the rich¬≠ness of Cas¬≠taing Entier Goose Foie Gras Mi-Cuit. If you pre¬≠fer fish with your glass, steer toward those with stronger tastes, like tuna or monk¬≠fish. This force¬≠ful wine goes best with equal¬≠ly strong cheeses like Pecori¬≠no Vec¬≠chio, Parmi¬≠giano Reg¬≠giano, or the more potent blues, such as Roque¬≠fort and Dan¬≠ish Blue.

ONE GRAPE WITH FIVE LEV­ELS OF DISTINCTION

The Valpo¬≠li¬≠cel¬≠la, that prize from the val¬≠ley region called the ‚Äč‚Äúpearl of Verona‚ÄĚ, pro¬≠duces five dis¬≠tinct appel¬≠la¬≠tions. The most wide¬≠ly avail¬≠able is the Valpo¬≠li¬≠cel¬≠la Clas¬≠si¬≠co, young and punchy straight out of the bot¬≠tle. To be con¬≠sid¬≠ered Valpo¬≠li¬≠cel¬≠la Supe¬≠ri¬≠ore, the wine must be aged at least a year and have a more con¬≠cen¬≠trat¬≠ed taste. The denser Ripas¬≠so del¬≠la Valpo¬≠li¬≠cel¬≠la (alter¬≠na¬≠tive¬≠ly called Valpo¬≠li¬≠cel¬≠la Ripas¬≠so or Valpo¬≠li¬≠cel¬≠la Supe¬≠ri¬≠ore Ripas¬≠so) is made by includ¬≠ing the skins of the Amarone grapes in the wine‚Äôs sec¬≠ond fer¬≠men¬≠ta¬≠tion process. The Amarone del¬≠la Valpo¬≠li¬≠cel¬≠la is an off-dry wine using only the Amarone grapes. A more spe¬≠cial¬≠ized ver¬≠sion of the Amarone del¬≠la Valpo¬≠li¬≠cel¬≠la is of sin¬≠gle-vine¬≠yard ori¬≠gin, ensur¬≠ing more uni¬≠form qual¬≠i¬≠ty. It is often a flag¬≠ship wine of that vine¬≠yard. The fifth appel¬≠la¬≠tion is the Recioto del¬≠la Valpo¬≠li¬≠cel¬≠la, a dessert wine made with Amarone grapes but with a fer¬≠men¬≠ta¬≠tion halt¬≠ed part¬≠way to retain the resid¬≠ual sug¬≠ars. The first three tiers have DOC cer¬≠ti¬≠fi¬≠ca¬≠tion, while the lat¬≠ter two have earned the cov¬≠et¬≠ed DOCG sta¬≠tus. Few oth¬≠er wine vari¬≠eties can claim the same sort of com¬≠plex¬≠i¬≠ty and status.

Storage Instructions

It‚Äôs best to store unopened red wines in a cool, dry, and dark place safe from con¬≠stant vibra¬≠tion. Keep your bot¬≠tle hor¬≠i¬≠zon¬≠tal in a wine rack or cel¬≠lar to retain the moist¬≠ness of the cork. The ide¬≠al tem¬≠per¬≠a¬≠ture for stor¬≠age is between 16 to 18¬įC.
