Critique Review

Captivating aromas of dried wild strawberries and chocolate-coated turkish delight. Full-bodied with still lightly firm tannins, but that lush fruit character takes no notice and drives through to a long finish. Delicious, stylish Amarone. Drink or hold.

James Suckling 2021

Sensations: revealing itself to the senses is a question of very high volume. Already at the first visual impact, which opens with its fresh, deep, blackish-purple colour, its perfume wall is also perceived. Layers and layers of fabulous ripe blackberry, whose abundant extracts and scents are wrapped and mixed with oak balms. A volume whose sound is not aggressive, but softly enveloping, this thanks to the balance and harmony that proportionately, perfectly, combine persuasive qualities of the sample under examination, with strength ones. Both virtues are of supreme excellence. The soft and vanilla roundness of this wine is excellent Finally, it is also powerful, thick, creamy, with a such oenological purity that its fruit / spices choir is always high, clear, crystalline and vanilla in aroma. A great wine, among the best red wines of the year.
