Top 10 Amarone tasted 11/13

9. Le Ragose Amarone (2006)

« Prev Next » 9 of 10
Average price: $58.64 from 11 stores
The gorgeous nose, shows off brilliant aromas of sweet herbs, complex middle eastern spice, dried herb stem, and rose stems. Elegant and wide open in the mouth, there are lovely red fruit flavors here, redolent of raspberry juice, then tobacco, bitter wild cherries, and a little cinnamon add engaging complexity. Fine ripe tannins keep this lively and fresh in the mouth, and through the finish which is long, persistently fruity, and clear as a bell with notes of dusty minerals emerging on the finale. 93pts
