In describing this wine, calling it basically an Amarone, is not correct but a pretty close and useful phrase. It is a blend of 70% Corvina and Corvina grossa, 20% Rondinella, 5% Croatina, and 5% Oseleta. Deep garnet in color, mostly opaque and bright. The nose is great with cherries, black cherries, spice, cedar and just a hint of camphor. Full bodied. Firm tannins. Great acidity. On the palate, this is delicious. Cherries and black cherries with spice and lively acidity. Long finish. This begs for food and would be great with pasta in a cream sauce. Drink over the next ten to fifteen years.
