This is a very nice Amarone that is not crazy expensive if one shops around. It is a step up from their "Pasqua" bottling. This is a blend of 65% Corvina, 25% Rondinella, 5% Corvinone, and 5% Negrara. It has a true Amarone quality about it. Deep ruby in color, mostly clear and bright. The nose has cherries, spice, slight dark chocolate and a hint of vanilla. Full bodied. This wine is dry but with a mouthfeel that is slightly viscous and seems like it would be sweet. Very interesting. on the palate, cherries with underlying earthiness and slight tobacco notes. A nice backbone of acidity. Long finish. This is quite young now and will likely improve with some ageing. This should drink well for ten to twelve years. It is a nice pair with roasted meats or fowl and will also work with pasta or pizza. It will drink better with food but drinks fine on its own.
