The 2010 vintage shows well. It's ruby red and well balanced. Medium high acidity, medium red fruit, full bodied and voluptuous with tangy and well rounded, well integrated mouthfeel. Just enough oak to complement the structured presence of fruit, tannins, and acidity without taking away from any of the components. Chewy cherry, tart red berries, dark chocolate and ripe plums on the nose and palate. Enjoyed with a California salad of baby spinach, fresh strawberries, fig-infused goats cheese, balsamic reduction and slightly toasted almonds or with your favourite cheese plate. Also enjoyed a red pepper and wild rice stuffed Tuscan chicken main which paired well. A wonderful expression of amarone at 15% alc without feeling heavy or excessive.

Very high acidity. Drink to enjoy, a wine to sip on, cigar and or a medium rare steak would be a suitable companion. Definitely a great one

Blackstrap berries, softly raisinated, with some nice food-scrubbing acidity.

Ripe fruit, clove and tobacco on the nose. Black plum, cinnamon, pepper and licorice on the palate. Well balanced, doesn't feel like it has as much alcohol as it does.

Good wine but a little bit too dry.

Not balanced wine, alcohol felt too much at the forefront. Bitter aftertaste says it all Amarone 😅☝🏾
Few acidity, too much alcohol. 2010
Fragrance is more promising than it tastes.

Developed wine, deep nose, but lacking complexity in the mouth. Nose is rich on chocolate, ripe red berries, raisin.

2012. Needs a few years to open lovely plum, prune. Rich body. Long finish.
