Tasting Notes

Amarone is an acquired taste, given its size as well as earthy, tarry characteristics. Certainly this wine reaches new levels of extract and richness, yet is dry, well-balanced, and, because of its extravagant richness, able to hide the whopping 16.5% alcohol it routinely possesses. The spectacular 1994 Amarone exhibits amazing freshness for a wine of such mass, size, and concentration. It oozes across the palate, but never comes close to being heavy. There are amazing quantities of truffles, smoke, black fruits, and licorice present in this exquisite wine. This is the product of a true genius. It should drink well for a minimum of two decades
