(2016) A typically bruising 15.5% abv for this Amarone, made from partially dried Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella grapes laid out to partially dry for 90-110 days before fermentation and aged in French oak barriques. Lovely kirsch and red liquorice lift, elegant flower notes and masses of red fruit, onto the palate, a smooth cocoa and mocha character underpins the fruit, intense sweetness of cherry and blackberry very nicely balanced by creamy oak, tight and smooth tannins and plenty of tangy acidity. It's a characterful wine that would be wonderful with some venison for example.
