In the glass it was medium bodied and with a nice rose color. The age of the vintage was thought to be in the 2004-2005 range. On the nose we had hints of spice and a over ripe dark fruit. The palate came through with spice, dark fruit and one report of liquorice. This wonderful wine had a medium finish with light to medium tannins
The Amarone della Valpolicella La Coeta Corte Lenguin DOCG 2003 is a blend of
Corvinone 60% , Rondinella 30% and Cabernet Sauvignon 10% This wine is made in the Italian
Veneto region using the Passito method. Grapes are dryed in a cool dry place for up to 4 months until they are semi-dry which
produces the concentrated sugar and flavor. If the fermentation continues and becomes completely dry it is called Amarone which means ”
strongly bitter”. The grapes used in this process are always of high quality. Also of note is the Corvina grape is blended with Rondinella to produce a light colored , light bodied wine that are usually characterized by tart cherry flavor and even a slight bitter almond flavor as well.
