Rather badly overpriced I regret. This is a rather mature amarone with ripe fig/raisin fruit, leather and...

Just pure heaven and smoothness even though it lacked complexity and depth. Tasted April 2013.

Second tasting. Lovely olive, plum, tobacco leaf notes. Dark cherry underneath. It has smoothed out considerably since last fall, but still lots of grip. Tannins a bit more balanced this time. Delicious. Drink now.
