Always a nice value in Amarone although the price has crept up.  Garnet in color, clear and bright.  This is a blend of 75% Corvina Veronese, 20% Rondinella and 5% Rossignola and Negrara. The nose has cherries, dried cherries, dust, chocolate and herbal bitters.  Ful bodied.  Light tannins.  On the palate, this has cherries, black cherries and char.  Nice finish. Drinking great now and should drink well for ten to fifteen more.  Wonderful on its own, this will work great with hearty food such as Lamb Stew.
