A mini Amarone that gives some good power at half the price

Description: Medium to dark garnet in colour with a medium+ intense nose. This wine features cedar, plum, dried cherries, blackberry, raspberry, wild blueberries, tobacco, dried herbs, black olives, prosciutto and sandalwood on the nose. Medium+ body with medium tannin, good acidity and a good length.

Negatives: None

Thanks to my brother, Andrew & his wife Liz, who brought this wine to dinner at my house.

Drink now or in the next 3-7 of years on its own or pair it with Braised Oxtail with Basil Dumplings.

Tasted: 9 May 2017
