Deep garnet red, intense dry grapes and plums with hints of spices (cloves and cinnamon) cherry jam and iris. Toasted almonds complete the finish.
The 2006 Amarone della Valpolicella offers up juicy red cherries, licorice, leather, smoke and scorched earth. Although this remains a fairly classic, mid-weight style of Amarone, the balance of fruit and structural components is commendable. The finish is long and beautifully articulated, even if slight elements of austerity remain. Still, there is a poise and sense of centeredness I find quite intriguing. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022.
