Lena Di Mezzo Amarone Della Valpolicella 2006
Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 5, February 26, September 11 and July 26.
Lena Di Mezzo Amarone Della Valpolicella 2006 Wine Review
Vintages Wine Panel: Amarone is the great red wine of Veneto. These rich, mouth-filling wines are delicious and seductive in their youth, but are even more delectable as they mature. Table or cellar, it’s up to you. Whenever you do decide to unleash this beauty’s power and charm, it will make for a dazzling finale to a grand meal. This is classic Amarone with plum, coffee, dark chocolate and black cherry aromas and a palate that is dry, full, rich, flavourful, impeccably balanced and deeply delicious. The finish rounds out the whole package: big fruit, velvety and a rich, long finish. My note: Powerful and deeply extracted with a black river of cherry liqueur followed by blackberry jam and dark spices. Full-bodied doesn’t begin to describe it. 4.6/5 Amarone Della Valpolicella food pairings: aged Parmigiano-Reggiano.
