Top Notes For
"Odedi"

Dark ruby in color with a short purple rim.

Light nose of blueberries, dried figs, raisins, vanilla, sweet raspberries, tobacco, herbs, wood, earth, chocolates, coffee, vegetables, leather and black pepper.

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

Dry on the palate with plums, dark cherries, blueberries, wood, cloves, vanilla, spices, espresso, vegetables, earth, wet leaves, tobacco leaf and peppercorn.

Medium plus on the finish with grippy tannins and tangy pomegranates.

This is a young Amarone. Still not fully balanced, but already enjoyable by itself or with food. Showing nice complexity and a great mouthfeel.

I would recommend to let it open for a couple of hours to show the complexity and the big tannins.

Needs 5 to 10 years of additional bottle time, to properly mature and tone down on the tannins.

A Blend of 50% Corvina Veronese, 30% Rondinella, 15% Corvinone and 5% Oseleta. Aged for 3 years in Slovenian oak barrels.

15% alcohol by volume.

Founded in 1902 with a vineyard farmed by Giacomo's grandfather, located in Pedemonte village in northwest part of Verona, today run by the 4th generation of the Tommasi family. A blend of 50% Corvina, 15% Corvinone, 30% Rondinella & 5% Oseleta. Aromas of dried fruits with savory spice notes. On the palate sweet plum and sweet cherry flavors with pepper and cacao. Soft tannins, chewy on lingering finish ending with a fig character.

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.
