Valpolicella (Veneto) This Amarone shows a deep ruby red color and nuances of garnet red, impenetrable to light. The nose reveals personality with intense, clean, pleasing, refined and elegant aromas which start with good hints of blackberry jam and black cherry jam followed by good and intense aromas of blueberry, plum, dried violet, tobacco, licorice, cinnamon, cocoa, vanilla and hints of cinchona and enamel. In the mouth has very good correspondence to the nose, a slightly tannic attack and however well balanced by alcohol, full body, intense flavors, good tannins, pleasing. The finish is very persistent with good and long flavors of blackberry, black cherry and plum. A very well made wine.
