Depth for days.. Rich, elegant layers. Plums, dried thyme and touch of wet earth. Dense in body, but flows effortlessly across the palate. Excellent extraction, drinking incredible now. Blows a lot of big name California reds out the water at same price point

Classic style Amarone. Deep, warming, rounded, and drinking fantastic now. Velvet mouthfeel, with deeply concentrated dark fruits, dried herbs, and an off the charts level of extraction.

Surprisingly light in color and profile. Muted. Left in decanter for 3 days and not much change. Maybe off bottle? Disappointing.

More reminiscent of a great Ripasso than an Amarone. It's a good sipping wine nonetheless, but nothing that should rock your socks.
