Wine Spectator 91 points - The 2009 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is a savory and sophisticated red with dusty notes of terracotta and flint backed by pressed plum, prune, dark smoke, leather and tobacco. This is a fabulous effort that will appeal to those who don?t like the overblown style normally exhibited in Amarone. The wine radiates elegance. Pair it with succulent steak marinated in rosemary and olive oil. Drink 2015-2027.
Accessible and well-balanced, this spice-driven red offers flavors of dried cherry, smoked almond, prune and dried herb. A push of graphite-tinged minerality shows on the finish. Drink now through 2023. 9,000 cases made.
