This wine is all about high alcohol. Raisins on the nose, very syrah-like on the palate, but alcohol overpowers this wine. Have as a cocktail, but not great with food.

Big and plump with cherry and spice. Alcohol is prominent, but not obtrusive.

The nose is beyond intriguing. Imagine sticking your face in a leather bag full of sour black cherries, chocolate shavings, and wild green foliage. Raisin-ey on the palate, with great complexity. Is it minty, or more of a tarragon? Not sure...but give me more! It gets a touch sour towards the finish...maybe it needs another few years to soften up.

Love the bold tones of Amarone grapes! To be open at least 1 hour to appreciate the flavors!

I remember really liking this wine, it stood out to me a little bit compared to other Italians
