(From 2006 Vintage) "Underbrush, crushed blue flower, fig, charred earth and ripe black cherry aromas come together on this full-bodied red. The brooding , muscular palate delivers blackberry jam, raisin, licorice and tobacco while tightly knit, ripe tannins provide support. Drink after 2017."
Color: Deep garnet red.Bouquet: Rich, delicate, with scents of dried fruit, spices and nuts.Taste: Warm, full, austere, full-bodied and complex, yet soft and velvety.
Antonio Galloni(From 2001 Vintage) "The 2001 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is a joyous wine to taste. This is a fairly restrained style for Amarone. Although the wine reveals limited complexity, it offers superb overall balance and an irresistible, caressing texture on the palate. The perfumed red cherry fruit is remarkably fresh for a wine of this age and the plumpness balances the wine’s tannins with notable elegance. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2018."
