Immediately impressive, with an ultraripe nose of black currants, nuts and even blueberries. The flavors follow suit, giving the palate a dense black plum and cocoa coating. Fat and plush, with very road, well-structured tannins, this is tempting now, and should be even better in three to five years.

Very ripe and very raisiny, with a smoky, almost burnt undertone. Full-bodied, with charred wood and pruny flavors. Silky tannin. A bit raw right now, but should improve nicely. Best after 2004.

Valpolicella personified, a deep and brooding style of wine. The '99 vintage shows dark fruits with good acidity and a plummy, raisiny finish. This vintage is best enjoyed with food young and with friends and cheese later in its life.

Good full red. Captivating, nuanced nose offers cherry, red currant and licorice scents. Sweet and subtle, with wonderful aromatic character in the mouth over a firm supporting spine. The finishing flavors of red fruits, dried herbs and spices show good lift and length.

The 2006 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Costasera is a beautiful version of this wine. The medium-bodied 2006 Costasera offers an attractive array of ripe red cherries, flowers, spices and sweet herbs, with lovely balance and tons of polish. Tar, smoke and licorice linger on the close. Anticipated maturity: 2010andndash;2018.

Kräftiges Rubin, fast purpur. Dicht gewobene Nase von gedörrten Pflaumen und reifen Zwetschgen, auch etwas gedörrte Aprikosen. Weich fliessender Gaumen von wiederum sehr reifer Frucht, auch Kirschenkompott, Zwetschgen und Rosinen, elegante Tanninstruktur, enorm ausdauernd.

Dunkles Rubinrot, undurchsichtig und fast schwarz. Wirkt in der Nase sehr konzentriert und fruchtig, Pflaumenkompott, Würze, Holz und Brotrinde. Im Gaumen mit süsslichem Auftakt, Kompott, Amarenakirschen, Dörrfrüchte. Sehr dicht mit präsenten und feinen Tanninen. Ist trotz seiner Jugendlichkeit schon sehr zugänglich und besticht mit elegantem und langem Abgang.

Winemaker's Notes:

"An aromatic floral thread accents this finely meshed red, which layers light tannins and tangy acidity with flavors of black currant, juicy cherry, cocoa powder, chai tea, fig and smoke. A fine balance of both finesse and grip. Drink now through 2030...93" WS 10/11
