It’s silky and pliant in texture, motivated by juicy acids, with a mix of ripe strawberry, pomegranate and cranberry sauce, as balsamic spices and hints of almond come forward toward the close. There is so much going on here, as the 2016 resonates on wild berry fruit and sweet inner florals. This may be a more opulent expression of the vintage, but it’s built to last, and sure to win a lot of fans. -- Eric Guido

Some vanilla pod, too. Full-bodied with generous, mouth-filling flavors, supported by firm, velvety tannins that push the fruit forward through the long, long finish. Always excellent Amarone. Drink or hold.
