Top 10 Amarone tasted 11/13

3. Speri Amarone (2009)

« Prev Next » 3 of 10
Average price: $74.99 from 34 stores
Deep, complex, and masculine, if a bit oaky at first, though air brings out huge mineral notes with elegant floral high tones layered over a core of black cherry fruit with a little prune accent. On entry this is muscular and sinewy, tightly packed with fine grained tannins and big cherry fruit followed by layered mineral and oak notes. This is as clean and precise an Amarone as you're likely to find, a bit of wood tannin intrudes today but a year or two will take of that leaving behind the wonderful core of fruit drenched with minerality, basalty and salty, with a little grilled meat edge. This has super acids that are seamlessly integrated, and a finish that is crisply tannic, dry and firm with a the subtlest edge of creaminess. A most vinous and ageworthy Amarone. I am excited to try this again with some age on it. 94pts
