Rebecca scored this wine: 90/100
Full bodied, lush and rich; lots of prunes, blackberries, red cherries, figs, and smokiness, with a touch of mocha on the finish. These flavours call for a nice piece of grilled striploin with a rich peppery sauce. It’s a balance between dried fruit intensity versus acidity, making it a great wine to enjoy with food but also by itself.
This Amarone benefits from sitting in a decanter for an hour or two before enjoying - it brings out the right balances in flavour. I also found that the wine tastes even better the day after opening the bottle. It's hard to find a quality Amarone for under $40 but this is definitely one of them.
