Speri Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Vigneto Monte Sant’Urbano 2017
From Speri’s greatest vineyard (and one of the greatest in Valpolicella), Speri’s classic Amarone is a real old-school star. A fresh, lightly exotic nose, offering dates, figs, fresh earth, and a hint of toasted coconut. On the palate there’s a fresh, focused bead of ripe and dried fruit, riding equally intense, firm tannins. Long finish. From organically grown grapes. There’s a youthful feel to this. It’s just at the start of a long life. Give it a year or so to settle in. Best from 2023.
