Notes from the Winemaker
Very dark ruby red. On the nose baked fruit, plums and cherries. Fruity tastes, with hints of coffee and cocoa. Very well balanced.
Excellent as an after-dinner wine, or to go with red meat, game, quails
and richly-flavoured dishes. Very good with well-aged cheeses, such as parmesan, pecorino and gorgonzola.
Reviews and Accolades
94 Points/James Suckling
A really fresh and well-balanced Amarone here, with tapenade, ripe but fresh blackberries, chili chocolate and some red berries, too. This is tight and juicy, with a medium-to full-bodied palate and a long, fruity finish. A modern, fresh expression of Amarone that shows immense drinkability, but still pretty serious. Not super-concentrated, but shows restraint and balance. Drink or hold.
94 Points/Wine Enthusiast
The wine is quite reserved on the nose to start, but with a decant it opens up nicely. The wine has aromas of red-cherry preserve, ripe plum, clove, anise and cinnamon. The palate is elegant with notes of dried leaves, dark chocolate and dark cherries. The tannins are already well integrated, giving the wine a magni??cent texture. Expect to enjoy this for a while Best from 2025–2035.
