WineDiva's Review

Seductive, generous, elegant.
An Amarone with rare purity and notes of cherries and vanilla, prune and strawberry jam, baking spices, tealeaf and chocolate. The entry is supple and leaves the impression of sweet fresh red fruit, carob, espresso and toasted spice; nice intensity here but it's not flabby. It has a refined elegance in the Amarone category and the classic bitter finish.


 
Recommended Pairings
Rich Meats , Chocolate, Cheese - Hard/Aged, Good First Impressions, Cellar Keepers
