Much less alcoholic than 1997. Dark fruit and much less passito mouldy character than in the 1997. Hints of dark chocolate and laurel and liquorice and talcum powder. Hints of oak. Elegant, round, full attack, immediately followed by acidity and powdery, but surprisingly powerful, tannin. Ends clean but also quite restrained. Seems dry (3.7 g/l RS ) also due to tannic impression and bitter laurel impression on the finish. Needs food! (WS)

A modern style, with densely packed plum and berry on the nose, with light licorice and eucalyptus notes. Full-bodied and tight, with a core of crushed black fruit, firm tannins and a long, long minerally finish. Very closed now, but should be fantastic after a year or two. Best after 2006. 11,500 cases made. –JS

The 1999 Amarone is reminiscent of the 2001 and the 2004 even if it doesn't quite have the same depth of those vintages. Fresh, perfumed aromatics are layered nicely with bright red fruits in this relatively delicate, high-toned Amarone.
