Blood and roses. Medium body, good acidity. This was tasty.

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.

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
