A great value in Amarone.  It actually tastes like an Amarone for $26.  Deep ruby/purple in color.  The nose is dusty with cherries and slight dried leaves.  On the palate, a nice combination of sweet black cherries and sour cherries.  Also some underlying crushed leaves.  Good acidity.  Light tannins.  This might not make old bones, but for this price, it would be fun to lay a bottle down and try.  In any event, this should be good for 5 to 7 more years.
