Decomposing hazelnuts on this very big, expressive nose.

Heavy handed, anise, clove, cinnamon bark, prune, waves of powdered Peruvian chocolate, Hazelnuts again, as a wrap up flavor, then, the addition of a lingering tangelo acid, now mingled with the hazelnut tannins.
An excellent choice for a birthday wine.
Decanted for 8 hours, as I have found Amarone demands.

Could have used more time in the bottle but had good potential

Vintage 2005 - Almost black colour, austere smell, sweetness in taste. #amarone #amaronedivalpolicella

Drank it young, so I'm going to hold onto the others for a few more years

Not enough substance here for my liking.

An industry standard. The definition of full-bodied. Port-like, but dry. A whirlwind of velvety texture in the mouth. Tingly sensation on the mid and back palate. Yummy.
