Amarone is a full-bodied wine for red meats, game, and tasty and piquant cheeses, like parmesan. Generally considered a wine for meditation, it is a great after-dinner wine.
Wine Enthusiast 92 points - Aromas of crushed violet, baked plum, cake spice, ripe berry and tobacco pervade in this bold, full-bodied red. The firm palate offers ripe black cherry, fig, mocha, nutmeg, licorice and tobacco alongside velvety tannins.
Wine Spectator 91 points - Finely balanced and silky, with the herb, mineral and woodsy spice elements of a more traditional version, bolstered by plenty of ripe wild cherry and dried strawberry fruit. Fresh and medium-bodied, delivering light, dusty tannins on the coffee-tinged finish. Drink now through 2026. 40,000 cases made.
