Top 10 Amarone tasted 11/13

6. Tommaso Bussola Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico Vigneto Alto Tb (2007)

« Prev Next » 6 of 10
Average price: $64.99 from 17 stores
Super meaty on the nose with a spicy note that recalls freshly grated ginger along with notes of leather and a vegemite earthiness. In the mouth this is richer than the 08, smooth and more pliant and obviously fruity with spicy dried fruit character and less minerality. A bit more drying tannin is wrapped in the dark dried fruits that feature an accent of bright red berry acid, through the fantastic finish, which is long with great freshness. This is complex and quite complete. 93pts
