Starting to show its age. I think it will continue to get better. Fruit flavors are stewed/raisinated if you’re into that. I think it’s a good buy for ~$20. Tasted blind.

2008. Smokey at first but mellows into nice dark fruit flavors.

Good but not great Amarone. Doesn’t have the depth of flavor of most Amar ones, but very drinkable. The 2012’s are better. But I would drink it again.

Presents with smoke and tannic nose when opened, then progresses to more earthy, barnyard nose after decanting. Fruit begins to emerge on the palate after 30 minutes open... still tight and somewhat tannic. After an hour open, the dried fruit, raisin, tobacco is apparent. This wine is young. I will try another in 2-3 years.
Enjoyed with fall mushroom risotto with shaved black truffle.

Beautiful aromas of chocolate. Cranberries and raspberries on the pallet highlighted with some earthy organic notes in the background. Silky texture. Luscious. Great vino! Thank you John P.

Vibrant but much too early to drink. The wine needs a few more years to bring out the dark raisin fruit... Which now is only a hint on the palate, overwhelmed by the deep fruit forward wine. I will leave this one in the cellar for another 6-8 years. In present form it was delightful with risotto con porcini funghi
