Another Wednesday Wine Committee in the books. Great hosting by @Bill Makens . 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds, 1 dessert wine all served blind.

Only the second Amarone I’ve had that has been truly fantastic. This was raisiny but not overly stewed and muddled. It was more dusty and fig based. Blackberry compote, Mexican vanilla, dark chocolate and candied dark fruits on the nose. Rich and decadent with graham cracker, black cherry liqueur and a small spice note toward the back of the palate. Lots of guesses of CdP and Sonoma zin. I went back and forth between zin and mid 2000s Aussie Cab.

So much better with this kind of age.

Check out Zenato, and let them sleep for at least 3-4 years if you can keep your hands of them.

Still to young I think. Tanine has some tard edges. Chocolate, tabaco, cherries, bayleaf. Full body, so I understand why I like this wine. — 4 days ago

Conclusion sentence 😉

Tommasi

Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Corvina Blend

Medium ruby/garnet in color with a nose of sour cherry, pepper, leather, and a slight note of almond. High acidity with tangy flavors pumping through. Medium body with intense flavor over a long finish. Finish is over a minute. Not particularly balanced, but amarone tends to be tilted towards high acidity. — 3 days ago

Big fella. Sweet cherry, leather and raisins. It reminds me of homemade nut roll. It’s been open for a few hours and the aromatics are fantastic. — 10 days ago

Sartori di Verona

Amarone della Valpolicella Corvina Blend

Brie cheese funk in the nose upon opening. Dissipated into dark chocolate, rasins and broken cherry tree branch green woodiness. Left the bottle open, uncorked, for 23 hours and came back to this tremendous complexity. Should age beautifully! — 7 days ago

Wow. Nose is very ripe fruit forward. Blue and black berry, bramble, herbal spice. Oregano seems right. Green forest breeze. Some dirt on the palette. ‘‘Tis a good table Super Tuscan. — a day ago
