Top Notes For
"Odedi"

Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.

Fruity nose of black cherries, plums, blueberries, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, herbs, spices, dark chocolates, coffee, peppercorn, earth, light vegetables, pencil lead and peppercorn.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with cherries, strawberries, red currants, licorice, tobacco, herbs, vegetables, spices, peppercorn, vinaigrette and spices.

Medium finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cranberries.

This is a great Amarone. Not fully balanced, yet enjoyable by itself or with food. Showing nice complexity and a great mouthfeel. Intense, smooth and rich

Needs a few years in the bottle to mature properly. Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up (2 hours). Died after 4 hour in the decanter, and became too acidic (... but there was not much left anymore😉)

I paired it with light appetizers, cheeses and smoked Meats.

Grapes were dried for 3 months before pressing. Aged for 30 months in Slavonian oak barrels.

A blend of 65% Corvina, 20% Rondinella, 5% Molinara and 10% Croatina.


15% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

$55.

Strong Amarone. Well-made and nicely priced, this Amarone may just be too heavy to drink except with steak. A powerful but overwhelming fruit bomb, there is not much nose here.
