(2010 Vintage) A powerful heady red made from grapes dried out on mats prior to fermentation to increase concentration
Complex, balanced and decadent - exactly what great Amarone should be. Layers of cocoa, dried cherry, spiced plum, mocha, cinnamon and fig on the nose lead to equal enticement on the palate, where lifted sour cherry notes and savoury spices inform the finish. Enjoy with mature cheeses, braised meats, pasta or bitter chocolate. (VINTAGES panel, Sept. 2013)
beautiful , full bodied, smooth, well rounded, what a wine should be! Wow! my new favorite!
Cost about $70
Wine Spectator(2007 Vintage) "An aromatic Amarone, showing lots of violet and rose petal aromas and flavors, with hints of sandalwood and anise accenting the ripe black cherry, currant and blackberry flavors. Fresh and polished, with lightly chewy tannins that rush through on the finish. Best from 2012 through 2030. 7,500 cases made."
