    Winemaker's Notes:

    Opaque ruby red with violet reflections on the edges. Very complex and powerful on the nose, where the supporting alcoholic strength shows through aromas of dried plums and a balsamic bouquet. Dry on the palate, with an intriguing softness and good acidity. Characteristic baked cherry flavours with clear hints of chocolate and cinnamon. Attractively long and satisfying with obvious, but extremely delicate, tannins.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This is a landmark Amarone that has often acted as the category's biggest ambassador abroad. It bursts open with aromas of dark berry, spice, leather and tobacco, and it is both generous and long-lasting on the palate.

    Rich and layered, with amazing texture and concentration. A gorgeous wine that will drink wonderfully for years to come.

    Wine was a little closed. Lacking pronounced fruit. 85/100. Overall, a nice drink but not spectacular--not a lot to discuss or talk about. Not as interesting or notable as a 2007 Zenato we had a week or so ago.
