Castellani Valpolicella 2006

External Review by Prestige Wine & Spirits:

There's lots of ripe currant, flowers and oak on the nose and palate. Full-bodied, with firm tannins and a long finish of spice and mineral. A quality wine, but a little foursquare now. Needs time. Best after 2010.

Shows dried berry, spice and cigar box notes, with dried fruits. Full-bodied, with round, caressing tannins and lots of ripe fruit and toasty oak, yet balanced and juicy. Why wait? But patience will pay off. Best from 2011 through 2018.

This is a top-notch Amarone, executed in a modern style, with incredible softness and intensity of flavors. The wine offers bursting cherry and currant berry fruit with playfully tart sweetness on the close. It's a lovely creation.

A clean nose, showing lots of fresh currant and raisin, with and hints of Indian spice and vanilla. Full-bodied, with lots of spicy fruit character. Elegant and silky. Tempting now, but will improve. Best after 2007.
