In a better spot now than the last tasting. Very good bottle but on the pricey side for the quality of the juice.

This bottle has more weight than prior ones. Solid bottle.

Red
2011 Tommaso Bussola Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Corvina Blend, Corvina

This bottle should be wrapped in a Sun-Maid label. Raisins are too dominant and overpowering. Instead of tossing it, we did the next best thing and made an Amarone risotto.

Red

Very fruit forward,tooth staining wine that trades on brand recognition and at a significant premium over similar quality wine. At this price point, more finesse is expected.
