Oh my! What a lovely maturing exotic bouquet on this Amarone with aromas of dried cherries, prune, raisins, soft leather, cola, clove and vanilla notes. On the mouthfeel, medium-full bodied with a fantastic mid palate richness and weight, low acidity and velvet tannins. This wines finish is long, very smooth, savoury with a silky texture. I think this Amarone is drinking pretty much at its peak right now, I agree with David here, slightly verging on oxidation. I paired this wine with a tomato based pasta dish with sausage and it work very well. This Amarone is the perfect remedy for a cold winter evening, an absolute beauty.
