Aromas of ripe dark fruits, cooking spice and smoky notes. On the palate of this bug wine, flavors of blackberry and plum, raisin like tones with cacao, oak and cinnamon spice. Rich tannins, soft, lingering well balanced ending with smoky spice. Very Nice. Tasting Sample.

Amarone della #Valpolicella at its best conditions of maturation. A 1993 vintage of rare quality, coming from the Crosara cru, south west of Negrar, a monopole of this winery. Still with good acidity and acceptable rate of oxidation, with only 14,5% of alcohol. Wow.

Bright cherry and spice on the nose. Slightly sweet and smoky cherry on the palate. Mouthwatering acidity. Moderate intensity tannins throughout with lingering finish. Well balanced.

Incredibly different than anything I've had before. It's not for every day. Sweet and heavy

Very very nice wine, smooth from the start. Accidentally opened Dave's birthday gift from Cheryl

Very nice Valpolicella with rich, full-bodied, raisiny sweetness and a velvety mouthfeel. Prunes, black currant, exotic spice. Pours blood red and opens up nicely, shedding some of its booziness over the first few hours. A delicious wine, bordering on a dessert drink.
