Rusty red robe. Big, bold nose with aromas of sour cherry, dried date & fig, cranberry, blackberry, smoked bacon and mocha with some hints of raisin, cinnamon and vanilla. Nice stuff, really. The palate is equally generous, with plenty of blackberry, blackcurrant and cedar spice, and a very supple, velvety texture and chocolatey finish - a finish that’s mighty hot, mind. I guess this wine is fairly typical of Amarone, a DOCG I have very limited experience in tasting. If I was blind tasting this, I’d like to think I’d land on Amarone by process of elimination as it’s fairly unique in its aromatic profile and quite obviously has a high ABV.

Ruby with with aromas of dried fruits with smoky spice notes. On the palate ripe blackberry and cherry flavors, savory, with tobacco & cacao notes. Full ripe tannins, chewy on long finish ending with a juicy fruit and pepper spice character.

Semi-sweet, velvety texture, hint of cherry licorice and oak, full-bodied and a long finish. Paired nicely with meaty red sauce pasta and cheese.

First bottle was aged, second was good. It may have been the cork.

Slightly sweet with fair amount of acidity. Fruity with some spiciness. Nice complexity and finish but not as easily drinkable as some other Amerones we have had. Decent wine but would not buy again given the price. $35

Easy drinking that isn’t as good as the expensive ones but still good.
