The complex nose opens with raisins and prunes, surrounded by wafts of honeysuckle, cedar, coffee, almonds and milk chocolate. The palate launches with astringency on the back dominating the weaker cherry at the center. After an hour, the sharpness fades, allowing the cherry to emerge in brighter, stronger, rounder notes, along with coffee, dark fruit, and crème brulée. Stays open and balanced over at least four hours.

From Larry the Wine Guy: An interesting Amarone. Actually quite bright in color, bright, light, with characteristic Amarone notes finishing from a much fruitier, younger more "berry-ish" background. I had this with some delicious, rich earthy ravioli stuffed with Osso Bucco short rib meat, in a cream mushroom sauce, and it was the perfect foil, the brightness and delightful fruits of this Amarone breaking up, or pleasantly interrupting, the richness of the foods.

Located in Valgatara, right in the heart of Valpolicella Classico zone, the Luigi Righetti estate has been a family run winery since 1909. Gian Maria Righetti is the fourth generation in the Righetti family to carry on the wine-making tradition. For this bold Amarone all of the grapes are sourced from their Capitel de Roari Estate vineyard. 60% Corvina, 30% Rondinella and 10% Molinara are dried on straw mats for three months before crushing. After fermentation the wine is aged two years in Slavonian oak casks. Full-bodied with an array of nutty, spicy and tangy aromas and rich earthy, smoky flavors that linger on the finish.

Weinrot mit feinen Reifereflexen. Würzig,, feine Teenoten, pflaumiger Untergrund, sehr aromatisch. Im Gaumen eine wunderschöne Extraktsüsse, die sich verteilt. Im eleganten Finale.

Glänzendes Granat-rubin. Rosinenartiges Bouquet, gepaart mit viel reifer Frucht, Zwetschgen und Backpflaumen, dezente Tabaknoten dahinter. Verführerische Gaumenaromatik mit feiner Kirschfrucht, auch etwas Amaretto-Aromatik, nussige Noten, von guter Struktur und sehr elegant, köstliche Röstaromen und ein lange anhaltendes Finale.

Tasting Notes:

This is a red and rich Amarone wine that comes from the viticultural zone of the Valpolicella in northeast Italy. On the nose, it has a smell of jam and berry. It has a long finish with very fine tannins to it.
