Just absolute dipspit. Imagine two grown men weeping over the untimely death of their favorite poinsettia. Bottle that. Age it. Then serve lukewarm. Even that would be a soft 7 compared to this amarone. Skeptical producer.

Really nice example of a high alcohol wine being completely balanced by fruit, acid and earth. 17% abv, lots of raisinated plum, quinine, balsamic, and savory herb. Quite delicious, almost a shame it's not colder outside.

'08. Dark-fruity, woodsy nose. Pruny-rich with a tinge of actual cocoa powder. Succuluscious. Steak-perfect.

Very intense. Love it!
Cherry pie, blackberry, apple jam, honey. Sooooo great! Very very high alcohol though, which is the main down side.
