Here we have a wine just hitting its stride and full of aromatic tea, dried soil, dried flowers, a bit of fungi, and an underlying sweetness to the emerging notes of dried meat, licorice and cooked fennel. While the nose gives the impression of something older, this is still fresh and tight on entry, with real focus, and very elegant with attractive freshness to the fruit. Very much in the house style with dried fruit tones cast over a bed of fresh cherry fruit. There's plenty of emerging tannin here and underlying minerality, inner mouth umami notes emerge on the midpalate then the fruit tries to explode on the finish which is long and shows complexity younger versions lack. Very acid driven on the finale, with air the nose gains more soil driven components, and complex dried herb and incipient tobacco notes. Raspberry fruit starts to pop on the midpalate, and the finish gains additional layers of flavor. This could probably evolve over the course of day giving a fascinating drinking experience, and remains a good candidate for an additional decade or two of cellaring. 94pts

92 Points - -- Wine Advocate"The 2001 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is a joyous wine to taste. This is a fairly restrained style for Amarone. Although the wine reveals limited complexity, it offers superb overall balance and an irresistible, caressing texture on the palate. The perfumed red cherry fruit is remarkably fresh for a wine of this age and the plumpness balances the wine's tannins with notable elegance. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2018."
