Tasting Note: 92pts Wine Enthusiast: "a powerful and serious Amarone. The nose of the wine is full of cherry-pie filling, cooked plums, cocoa powder and freshly roasted coffee. The palate is reserved at first, but after time it opens to highlight the lush fruit found on the nose. The wine's structure and ample acidity help balance this serious wine.”
