Holy smokes! I can smell the alcohol on this wine -- at 16.5% that's no surprise. Port, the fortified wine, clocks in at 19%. Nevertheless this is delicious with sweet black cherry flavours and a smooth texture. Perfect for roast beef. Black cherry liqueur and mocha coffee aromas on the nose. Robust with a deepest, darkest concentration of black fruit.
Amarone Della Valpolicella food pairings: baked lasagna, linguine with fresh and sun-dried tomato sauce, spaghetti alla carbonara..

|Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:|
A big bold spicy Amarone upfront with sweet, ripe, concentrated flavours backing up the palate. This divine marone showcases a bouquet of intensely concentrated stewed plum, jammy cassis, cigar box, cedar, mocha, and spice with layers of nuanced flavours that go on forever. Tannins are silky smooth on the palate with a balanced acidity and an opulent mouthfeel. Enjoy with prime rib roasts. Tasted May 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
A beautiful Amarone Della Valpolicella from Veneto D.O.C., Italy. Very deep garnet with rich aromas of dark berries, sweet spice, herbs, leather and violets echoed beautifully on the voluptuous palate. Mouth-watering acidity and satiny texture with luxuriously long finish. Savour this one slowly or enjoy with venison and game. Great gift wine for Fathers Day.

|Latium Morini's Campo Leòn (2011) is an Amarone Della Valpolicella from Veneto. The red wine blend is 35% Corvina, 35% Corvinone, 20% Rondinella and grapes were hand-harvested and air dried for 100-120 days in traditional small baskets. Lots of ripe cherry, green herbs and crushed flowers on this dark red wine with a dark chocolate and spicy finish. This Amarone is suitable for vegans. - Community Wine Reviews|
