Top 10 Amarone tasted 11/13

7. Masi Vaio Amaron (2007)

« Prev Next » 7 of 10
Previously available for $75.00
Very aromatic on the nose with exotic woody spice notes, cherry wood. Interestingly this is more perfumed in the mouth where huge floral notes emerge along with the exotic cast of cherry wood aromas. Round and powerful in the mouth, there is an attractive precision on the palate. This has unusual cut for an Amarone, long rich but light on its feet, tight, and superbly elegant. I love the tannins here, very snappy and adding support to what remains a rich, round and supple palate that all gets wrapped up in the long, spicy, and complex finish. 93pts
