Cesari Amarone della Valpolicella Bosan 2011
|Italy, Veneto, Amarone della Valpolicella
Made with 80% Corvina and 20% Rondinella, the 2011 Valpolicella Ripasso Superiore Bosan is a delightful treat. Bosan is regularly one of my favorite Ripasso wines. What sets it apart is the purity and the intensity of the bouquet. The style is bold and the oak tones (the wine sees 12 months in barrique with an additional six months in botte grande) are evident but well-folded within the greater texture of the wine. A wine of this intensity could pair with breaded veal chops or roast beef.
