La Giaretta, Veneto

A baby Amerone, but without the guaranteed headache, this single vineyard wine from Valpolicella is soft but complex with a nose of crushed velvet, Kirsch and wood polish. The late harvesting and partial drying of the grapes shows in its smooth sweetness allied with excellent grip and a taut, linear flavour profile, full of wiry strength – much like Francesco, the Estate’s energetic winemaker.

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.
