Deep ruby red
Warm, ripe on the nose, intense and of great refinement.
Complex, smooth, full bodied, lots of cherry notes and plum
Wine Advocate 92 points - The 2011 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is a dark and extra-ripe expression with broad shoulders and a heavy frame. The warmth of the 2011 vintage shows clearly with darkened aromas of blackberry preserves and candied cherry. Bold layers of spice, leather and tobacco stand at the back. The wine boasts smooth, velveteen tannins. Drink this Amarone within the next 5-8 years. (Feb 2015)
