Gli Occhi Blu di Sabrina 1999

Member Review by Riv3r:

This amazing handcrafted, unfiltered Amarone given to me as a gift. It came with strict instructions to decant the wine and allow at least 2 hours for it to breathe. Curious, as I have limited exposure to wines of this caliber, I sampled the wine as I decanted it: intense, syrupy, tannic. Three hours later, the wine blossomed in to an amazingly complex and wonderful experience. The boquet was sharp, with strong cherry and oak overtones. Surprisingly sweet on the palate, with more intense dried cherry overtones here, very musky. The finish is peppery and has definite cocoa aftertaste, as noted by another review on the net. This wine is terribly difficult to come by in the US, and only 600 bottles were produced. If you find a bottle, snatch it up immediately.
