If Amarone is your style but slightly above your price point, try this nice ruby coloured Ripasso. A fruity nose gives way to a jammy fruit filled palate, integrated nicely with acidity. A bit tannic and hot (serve slightly chilled and decanted). There's a suggestion of sourness and herb but fruit wins out. A bit hot on the lingering finish. This could be cellared short to mid term. Dec. 2013.
