Intense ruby in color with a fine garnet at the rim. An expressive nose with intense aromas of chocolate, cherries, dried plums graphite and truffles. Medium plus acidity and medium plus body, round, ripe, masculine and fully mature. A core of dried cherries, plum compote, red licorice, rosemary, black olives and smoke. The finish is long and lingers with black truffle.

Dark red with aromas of black and red fruits with big sweet toasty spices. On the palate sweet cherry, blackberry and dried currant flavors, with cacao and smoky tobacco notes and savory spices. Soft smooth tannins well balanced with acidity on a medium finish ending with earthy tones.

First part of our vacation/2-yr wedding anniversary here in Alaska has been nothing short of spectacular. Lovely resort, highs in the low 60s, and gorgeous scenery!

The resort has quite a few dining options, most boasting very impressive wine lists. We had a simple meal tonight and was wanting to branch out, so I went with an Italian. My knowledge is so minimal on Italian wines, but this was very easy going. Kirsch, cedar underbrush, raspberries were the main aromatics. Front and mid palate were fairly thin, but a punch came with the finish. Dusty raspberries, herbs, and a small hint of fig. Needs about 5-years to even out.

Dark ruby, but not very dense. Good nose, hints of blackberry with a pleasant fresh herb surprise in the aftertaste.

Dark ruby color with a browning rim. Wonderful nose of dried cherries, figs and milk chocolate. Full bodied, rich with a mouthful of plum compote, black cherries, licorice and cigar box notes. The finish is crazy long with grippy tannins. This one has a long life ahead of it. #amarone #veneto #italianwine
