This is a staple at Trader Joe's (at least my local store). For under $20, it is hard to find a less expensive Amarone. The only problem is that it really doesn't taste like an Amarone. At least not like the better ones that have eanred this area's reputation. That said, it is a good solid wine that if it had been labelled Valpolicella I might have said it a fine value. Ruby in color. The nose has cherries and slight dark cherries. The fruit carries over to the palate. Nothing dried or rasin about this. Good acdity. A solid wine.
