Top 10 Amarone tasted 11/13

8. Tommasi Amarone Ca Florian (2007)

« Prev Next » 8 of 10
Average price: $100.00 from 1 store
7000 bottles, Corvina, Corvinone, rondinella, a little longer drying process than Amarone, aged for four year, two years tonneaux, two years in botte, Sweet candied black cherry fruit greets the nose along with a huge chocolate note, and steeped green herb accents. rather spicy and pure in the mouth, this shows much more energy and transparency in the mouth than the Amarone normale. Super black cherry fruit drenches the palate followed by a lovely flush of minerality on the back end. Remaining clear and snappy in the mouth, subtle green herb stem and licorice nuance add detail while this finishes with salty focus and persistent spice notes, with a hint of wood influence showing. A big step up from Tomassi’s basic Amarone, this shows impressive textural and flavor complexity. 93pts
