Well blended, smell complex, start with plums and end with cherries

Enjoying the same bottle of wine at the same restaurant we got engaged, great 7 years.

Delicious. Rich and well balanced. Soft on the tongue. Goes well with mild cheese.

Starting Christmas Holidays with takeout and a Masi. Dark fruit and leather in the nose!

In my pantheon of Amarone, this doesn't rate too highly. Dark ruby to purple in color, smoky sulfur nose absent much fruit, sweet attack (15% as evidenced by ample sheeting down the glass), subdued fruit is at dark plum/dark berry, medium grip, medium+ acid, slightly chewy, persistent finish. I expect a lot more from Amarone. Not a lot of complexity, depth, or richness.

An elegant Amarone. This light-to-medium bodied wine presents gorgeous dried fruit flavor of raisin, prune, and cherry with nutmeg, clove, pepper, cocoa, and cinnamon. Reminiscent of an oatmeal raisin cookie without being too sweet. Good acidity. Not as thick and sugary as past Amarones I've had.
