Wine Description

(2000 Vintage) "The 2000 Amarone (70% Corvina, 25% Rondinella, 5% Molinara) is big, rich and sexy in the way it combines fresh, vibrant rose petals, red cherries and spices with a firm, structured personality. Although it is not especially generous in its fruit, it does offer notable poise in a powerful, muscular style. Anticipated maturity: 2007 - 2012." Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate 90 Points

    (2007 Vintage) Rich, round, intense and dry with freshness and slight chewiness and notes of lemon peel, cherry compote, cherry cola, red licorice, dark chocolate, dried herbs, and button mushroom.

    (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."
