This is an inexpensive Amarone that is at least true to its name. So many of these are just glorified Valpolicella's it seems. Purple in color, ruby at the rim. The nose has dried cherries and black cherries with an herbal note and slight raisin. On the palate this drinks well. Dried cherries with an herbal note. Dry. Good acidity. Nice with food. Nothing amazing here but enjoyable and drinking very well for the price.
Revisited in August, 2018. This bottle seems to have faded just a bit. Could be bottle variation or it might be starting to slip. If you have multiple bottles, check in on them.
