This is maturing with garnet-brick colour – a little more quickly perhaps than some other amarone from this excellent...

Moderately expressive but very high toned, fully raisined, slightly volatile expression of Amarone, that comes across...

Medium garnet colour. Developing dried and jammy black and blue fruit nose, with cedar. The palate is medium weight with stuctured acid and fine tannins. A bit hot. Cherries, plum and smoke. This is a lighter version of Amarone. Feb 2011.

This Amarone was a mess. Already starting to brick on the rim it's "evolving" fast. I don't know if i tasted an off bottle (I doubt it) but this had a really odd, volatile nose (cabbage stewed in nail polish?) and a palate to match. This was somehow both over-ripe and under-concentrated. Too much alcohol and not enough flavour to balance it.

Overall: just weird.

In it's defense, the bottle I tasted had been open for a day (though properly re-corked). Still, a respectable Amarone should still taste great the next day even if left open on the kitchen counter.

Drinkable, but why bother?
