It is a big Amarone made in the traditional style. Exuberantly massive both on the nose and palate, it has great structure and power. The characteristics of the grapes themselves and the particular microclimatic conditions in the drying areas favour a greater attack of botrytis which gives this Amarone fullness, roundness and an illusion of sweetness in the perfume ("reciotato”).
Wine Spectator 92 points - A grippy, sculpted red, featuring tarry smoke and grilled herb notes that underscore the flavors of date, baker’s chocolate, ground anise and baked plum. Tightly wound and burly right now, so give this time. Best from 2017 through 2027.—A.N. (Feb 26 2014)
