Top 10 Amarone tasted 11/13

1. Tommaso Bussola Amarone Vigneto Alto (2007)

Next » 1 of 10
Previously available for $190.00
Bottled August 2012 to be released in January 2014 Raw beef, fresh wild herbs, chocolate, malt, and a low spice character all come together on the explosive nose. In the mouth this is elegant and rich, really handling its weight quite well. there’s gorgeous fruit here. Bright and a bit chewy with black cherry almost blackcurranty flavors that pick up a little cured black olive with air. The backend shows a hint of drying tannin adding weight through the nearly endless finish. Defines iron fist in a velvet glove. A powerhouse. 97pts
