There’s something magical about this wine: the purity, the elegance, the harmony, the immediate rush of intensity. This is one of Italy’s iconic wines thanks to the profound purity it delivers with notes of chocolate, leather, cherry, apple, cola and spice. It imparts loads of succulent flavor and is simply beautiful.

The 1998 Amarone reveals a gorgeous nose along with ripe red cherries, cough syrup, spices and minerals on a medium-bodied frame. Made in a sweet, inviting style, it offers excellent length as well as purity in a very classic style. It also appears to have enough fruit to compensate for the volatile acidity which is present. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2018. - Antonio Galloni

The nose is subtle, yet complex and enticing, offering spicy dried fruit, fresh cola leaves, tobacco, dried flowers and red brick aromas. Full-bodied, with a tight bead of spicy currant that comes to the fore and characterizes the long finish. More linear than the 1997, but well-balanced. Less concentrated and sweet than in the past. Drink now. – JC
