Stunning, brawny, tannic. 15% abv, but it’s tucked in very elegantly.
A very dense, rugged presentation on the palate. Pronounced oak treatment, in a good way. Very fruit-forward, with ripe tannins, and extended finish. Big surprise.

The nose is *very* powerful : small red berries, tea leaves, caramel and vanilla. A hinch of raspberry too. A bit of warmth as well, and a bit of plum too. Very strong. The palate is powerful too. It starts with a very acid slide that goes down for ever, small red berries all along, layers of complexity : caramel here, soft silky touches there on the sides, franc tannins in the end and a blast of a finish with plum and small red berries dancing in a firework with a nice bitterness and a soft touch that never ends. After yesterday's amarone I wanted some more. This one is more muscular, yesterday's was more subtile and gracious.
Not cheap though, around 45€ — 15 days ago
Another solid vintage of this favorite. Blend of local red grapes along with Merlot. Appassimento-Style to concentrate the red berry fruit flavors and sugars. Hints of sweet spices. Balanced acidity and velvety tannins. Dark ruby color with a soft round finish. Just made sense for a Valentine’s Day celebration. — 2 hours ago
16.5/20 (90/100) Аромат компота из чернослива и сушеных яблок, изюма, инжира и чёрного чая. Тельное с высокой кислотностью, сухими танинами и заметной спиртуозностью. Не самое лучшее амароне, конечно, ему не хватает комплексности. Но для любителей мощных и напористых вин могу рекомендовать. — 8 days ago
This wonderful soave tastes like a sunny clear sky if you could drink it. On the nose we’re getting lemon citrus, yellow apple and white flowers. More of the same on the palate with a zingy acidity and a unique finish of stone and minerals. Solid soave. — 10 days ago
A nose of young green cherry bark.
Pom juice with blue fruits, tarragon, touched it roasted oregano. A touch of vanillin on the back end, with fruit skin.
Mid to heavier weight, with a solid fruit/tannin ratio. An innovative and iconic wine. Always worth having one on deck.

Baby amarone. Could have been better after a some. Air. Red berries, raisins, chocolate too. Nice nose. The palate is powerful, almost semi dry. Some tannins. Some nice layers of texture. An expending finish with red berries and raisins too. Very cool once again. I could have this every week — 9 days ago
