A succulent Amarone, the Accordini is thick with aromas - cherry and dried fruit, molten chocolate and sweet spice with roasted hazelnut, toffee, a hint of banana and a dense, earthy core. Expect loads of spice, cocoa and rich berry flavours, it is full on the palate with nice acidity to brighten it up. It is dark and decadent - savoury flavours of herbs, roasted espresso beans and smoked, meaty tones hang on the finish. Nice depth, a pleasing chewiness with supple tannins on the finish.
Pair it with rich meat dishes or with hard aged cheeses, after the meal.
