From Italy’s 2016 Winery of the Year, a specialist in Amarone, comes this deep, intense red. Sun drying grapes before fermentation gives Amarone an irresistible, chocolatey, dense cherry richness. A glorious combination of power and complexity.
Award winning Cantina Valpolicella Negrar works closely with small local growers, encouraging the highest standards in the vineyard – both for the benefit of the environment and, most importantly, for the quality of the grapes. Made from Valpolicella’s classic varieties Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara, selected from ‘cru’ vineyards, the wine is named after the wires (La Tirela) along which the vines are trellised for maximum sun exposure. Star winemaker and oenologist Daniele Accordini slowly fermented the partially dried grapes to capture their complex, spiced berry aromas and ripe cherry, plum and raspberry flavours. Rich and full bodied, La Tirela would traditionally be served with game, grilled and braised meats or risotto all’Amarone.
"Deep, powerful and smooth, exceptionally long finish. One of my favorites ever! BRAVO!"
