A thread of peat smoke runs through this more traditional-style Amarone which offers flavors of roasted plum dried cherry raisin cigar box pekoe tea and pepper with other ground spices. Tightly packed tannins push through on the long finish. This is one for the cellar. Best from 2014 through 2036. -AN

Smooth and nicely balanced in the mouth with red cherry and blackcurrant flavors complicated by green pepper orange peel and coffee. The long finish displays a lingering peppery note. A rather civilized version of Amarone with a graceful personality although a hint of alcoholic warmth emerges on the back.
