Editorial Reviews for Tedeschi Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico Capitel Monte Olmi
Produced seven times since 83, three thousand bottles, Dark, leafy edged black cherry fruit, and grilled meats dominate the nose which turns lightly spicy with cedary wood, handfuls of dried leaves and earth, black tea, and a little pencil lead with air. A bit low on the palate, this is soft and seamless with roasted and pruny fruit that none the less feels fresh on the palate, though with the truffliness that comes from surmaturite. Fairly firm and tannic, though the tannins are very well covered with black cherry fruit on the palate. The fruit gains some detail in the mouth, very well grounded with spicy mineral notes and exotic spice notes which lead to a finish that absolutely crushes the palate with tannin. This is a monster. Not sure what will happen with this wine. The prognosis is good but so outside my range of experience that one has to be conservative when thoughts turn to its future. 92pts

Plums, mocha, chocolate, spices, new leather and flowers are some of the notes that emerge from this fleshy, large-scaled Amarone. This is a fairly obvio...
