|Region||Italy, Veneto, Amarone della Valpolicella|
Wine EnthusiastRipe dark fruit, nutmeg, clove and tobacco aromas lead the nose on this bold and balanced wine. The rich palate delivers black plum, raisin, cinnamon, black pepper and licorice supported by velvety tannins and fresh acidity. Combining elegance and power, it boasts wonderful depth. Drink 2015-2025.
James Suckling"I like the austere yet generous character to this Amarone with cocoa powder, dark berries and fresh lemon rind. Some wet stones as well. It's full-bodied yet firm and fresh. Clean and bright finish. Drink or hold."
Wine SpectatorBeautifully balanced and integrated, this offers sweet dried cherry and date fruit, as well as savory accents of loamy earth, herb and smoke. Fresh and focused, with a silky texture that carries a streak of minerality on the finish. Drink now through 2030. 40,000 cases made.
