The great success that has swept the Valpolicella appellation in recent decades hasn’t taken Tiziano Accordini by surprise. Instead, he’s seized the moment and developed the family business, moving from the bottom of the Pedemonte valley to the high hill of Cavalo where, at over 500 meters elevation, he built the cellar and expanded the area under vine. Alongside him the new generation has slowly begun to collaborate, gaining more and more autonomy while consolidating a range characterized by a rich and vigorous style. The Amarone il Fornetto ’15 pours a lovely, vibrant ruby color, anticipating deep, multi-layered aromas where sweet fruit is followed by notes of spices and medicinal herbs. In the mouth, its remarkable power is perfectly managed by acidity and a close-knit tannic texture. The Amarone Acinatico ’17 plays more on immediately pleasant aromas accompanied by a full, juicy and dynamic palate.
