This dark wine offers aromas of blackberry, vanilla and cedar on the nose, along with a strong sense of minerals.  Dark fruit dominates on the palate, with sweet oak spice, chalky limestone minerality and very firm tannins.  Have a steak with it, or game meat dishes.

Really good. Needed about 30 minutes to an hour in the decanter to open up. Then it was classic.

Vintage 2015 / a bit introverted, Amarone is not my thing

Speris began working as vine growers in Valpolicella seven generations ago. Ruby with aromas of dried berry fruits with sweet smoky spices. On the palate flavors of ripe plum and sweet berries with cacao, spice and fig flavors. Fine tannins, lingering, complex rich finish ending good structure.

Gorgeous, old-school Amarone. Twenty years in, and it's a delight.
