Nose: blueberry and blackberry jelly, bit of sweet dark incense (dragons blood), pine needle, dried dates/figs, sundried tomato, dried oregano and dried basil. Very pleasant! Taste: dry, medium-full bodied. Sweet dried fruits predominate: figs, black currant and dates. Some fresh pomegranate and blueberry acidity. Silky texture with a very soft light finish of fresh ripe blackberry. Mid palate of sweetgrass and vanilla bean. Very gentle tannins. Hedonistic. 91.
Nose:blueberry jelly nose...a lot. A little bit of tomato and basil. It is really much like a red pasta sauce with some pepper. A hint of wood. Plum sauce and candy dates. Taste: medium body, dates, figs, prune, and candied blueberry. Dry with but try texture. Soft and delicate fruit forward profile with a smooth finish. Custard in terms of mouthfeel. It reminds me of the steam milk layer on a latte. Gentle profile with a lot of layers.
From 375ml. This was the first Amarone I've ever had, and I will probably buy more to drink with food. Sure, this is not one of the most complex or long wines I've had - actually, it's quite simple and very short. But I did like its structure, and so did my wife - there is nothing flabby about this bottle, and it is very tasty. The dryness at the end more than compensates the sensation of sweetness when first entering the mouth. 90pts today, and quite enjoyable for the price I bought it (around 10 euro) at Verona.
Intense and concentrated. Slight sweetness but not in a bad way. Despite a high alcohol level (15.5%) it is hidden well and relatively smooth. I don't often drink amarone but surprised how easy to drink this was. Very enjoyable
