Reviews and Ratings

Alex & Priya - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

P: Amarone, my favorite wine because it sounds like ‘amore’ or ‘love’. And I do love you amarone—some more than others but overall you are the tops in my books. This one is almost purple which coincidentally is my favorite color. Smells lovely, maybe like a cooled, mulled wine—spicy and fragrant. And tastes about the same. All in all it’s a keeper.
A: On day 2 this has a quintessential amarone smell, of black licorice, cardamom, dried cherries and clove. It almost makes me think of Christmas, which is what Priya was getting at with the ‘mulled wine’ note. Lovely dark ruby color, sappy, spicy and minty on the palate, this coats the mouth with a visceral film, but it’s not heavy or oaky. It ends with a touch of sweetness, into a very solid entry-level-priced amarone.
This Italian red wine is made in the Appassimento style, traditional for Amarone. A lot of oak and alcohol here. - Community Wine Reviews
