This is a lovely Amarone that delivers a lot for its price point. It is a blend of 85% Corvina and 15% Rondinella. Garnet in color, mostly opaque and bright. The nose is great with black cherries, plums, dried cherries, slight char and roasted herbs. Full bodied. Medium tannins. On the palate, lots of fresh and dried cherries with some underlying roasted herbs and spice. Nice balance. Long finish. Delicious. This is drinking well now and should continue to drink well for another ten years. It drinks well on its own but will work better with food. Roasted fowl of vegetables would be a good match.
