Deep purple-tinged ruby. Grapey, deep aromas of stewed plum, raisin, date and cocoa explode from the glass. Rich, smooth and very dense, with wonderfully tactile flavors similar to the aromas. This very pure Amarone finishes creamy-sweet but fresh, thanks to sound acidity. An extremely successful entry-level Amarone made from grapes that were air-dried for roughly four months.

Have this some serious are and it was well deserved showing plenty of Christmas spice; cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice, icing sugar, orange peel and stewed cherry. It's like a very rich yet elegant take on good mulled wine. In the mouth there is plenty of rich fruit concentration, sweet cherry and liquorice though implodes slightly on the mid palate with a lacquered finish, rich.

2008 #Amarone #wine. Delicious. Rich raisin, cherry cola with a deep spice, roasted coffee finishing. Gearing towards port like aroma. 15%

Grapey, plum, smooth with mild tannin. Dried herbs, finishing cocoa.

I just liked how I could still taste it five minutes after a sip, when my wife sent me downstairs to get more paper towels. I remember cracking the faintest of smiles when I was all alone in the bowels of my home and whispering "man this is good 😏." Cellaring time was well worth it in this case. I felt like the body wasn't as thick and syrupy as a younger Tommasi Amarone, but it was still heavy and lingering... and I like this fact.

Dry finish for an Amarone, in that being similar to Bertani '06, but not as 'rocky' and masculine. Soft, semi-ripe dark purple prunes, yet approachable and enjoyable.
