About

93

Long and creamy, this compact, concentrated, full-bodied red swathes supple tannins in a cloak of sun-dried cherry and date fruit flavors, with aromatic hints of candied orange peel and eucalyptus and a minerally underpinning that echoes on the finish. Drink now through 2029. 2,000 cases made. —Alison Napjus

Product Description:

This outstanding Amarone is a stunning buy for the money. Ultra rich with amazing complexity and a finish that lasts for more than 60 seconds. A tremendous effort!

Dried fig and date notes enrich the baked cherry, eucalyptus and coffee liqueur flavors in this ripe and juicy Amarone, with creamy tannins. Medium- to full-bodied, showing ample spice and citrus details lingering on the finish.
