La Giaretta, Veneto

Dark and dense with the cherry and chocolate nose of Black Forest Gateaux and notes of cedar, peat blocks and vanilla. The palate betrays the heat of the 2005 vintage, offering a ripe and spicy compote of kirsch, black fruits and cocoa, but there is fresh acidity and fine-grained tannins (as well as 15% alcohol) to give this hedonistic wine a firm backbone. Big and powerful but not flabby and overblown, this wine needs to be taken seriously…


The La Giaretta estate

Introduced to us at Vinitaly 2006, the wines from La Giaretta have rapidly established themselves as among the most popular of our portfolio. When tasting, the progression from the basic Valpolicella all the way through to the astonishing single vineyard Amarone Riserva offers a clearly linear relationship, the wines increasing in intensity, power and richness BUT maintaining a freshness of fruit expression throughout. The release of the Amarone 'I Quadretti' 2001 last September was greeted with a flurry of excitement by eager clients and critics acknowledging this as one of the greatest Amarone wines produced in decades.
