Top 10 Amarone tasted 11/13

4. Tedeschi 'Amarone' Classico (2008)

« Prev Next » 4 of 10
Average price: $81.65 from 11 stores
High toned stemmy herbal notes greet the nose followed by a little black pepper, some grilled meats, fresh plum, sweet tobacco, and drying hay aromas. Downright velvety on entry, lush with ripeness underpinned with some fine grained tannins. The dark fruit is a bit blueberry toned at first then shows flashes of currants and dried cherries in alcohol. there‘s great depth with a real flush of minerality on the finish along with perfumed macerated herbal notes adding additional complexity. This is seamless, elegant and refined until the long finish when the tannins and minerality wallop the palate. Already impressively attractive this should only improve with additional time in bottle. 94pts
