This had been open a day or two... or three by the time I got to taste it. The nose was oxidized, but sometimes Amarone is this way. Big cassis and liquor on the nose also. Intense anise and stewed dark fruit on the palate. Flavors of plum, clove, cinnamon and other dried berry notes as well as sage. Interesting. 3/10/12

Compact and pure, with lovely floral aromas accompanying the sweet date, currant and lightly spiced vanilla. Full-bodied, with a tight, firm tannin structure underpinning the dense dried fruit, followed by a long finish. A stylish Amarone. Best after 2010.

The 2004 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is the wine that formerly carried the ldquo;BGrdquo; designation as the estatersquo;s entry-level Amarone. This is an accessible, fresh style of Amarone with well-delineated aromatics and plenty of clean, focused fruit. Medium in body, it offers outstanding finesse and depth on the palate. This bottling is aged in a combination of small and large barrels of various sizes. Anticipated maturity: 2008ndash;2014.

The 2003 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is a highly unusual wine of freakish dimensions. Bussola fans will recall that the estate released its 2004 Amarones last year. This 2003 Amarone took almost five years to finish fermenting; in fact one tank was at the tail end of fermentation when I visited the estate in April 2009! This is an exotic Amarone that captures an almost port-like expression of fruit while remaining light on its feet. There is plenty of clarity and detail in the dark fruit, flowers and minerals that waft from the glass. Despite its ripeness and richness, this remains a medium-bodied, accessible Amarone perfect for near-term drinking. Anticipated maturity: 2009ndash;2023.

The 2005 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is a beautiful entry-level wine. This mid-weight, feminine Amarone is layered with rose petals, raspberries, truffles, sweet tobacco and herbs. The 2005 shows lovely length and polish in an understated style. I donrsquo;t see this making old bones, but it should drink nicely for at least a handful of years. Anticipated maturity: 2011ndash;2015.

A ripe, velvety red, with a fine frame of supple tannins, displaying flavors of prune, kirsch, bitter herbs and loamy earth, with just a hint of savory-sweet sun-dried tomato. Therersquo;s a subtle juiciness, with a sweet, smoky note that builds toward the long finish. Drink now through 2026.

Veneto, ItalyBussola Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is a classic red wine gem made from the Veneto region in the northeast of Italy. This beautiful blend of Corvinone, Corvina Grossa and Rondinella is the perfect red to enjoy with good friends over a rich meal. When Veneto legend Giuseppe Quintarelli was asked years ago to name the region's next superstar, he didn't hesitate: Tommaso Bussola. Today Bussola's wines have become world-famous for their incredible intensity of fruit and he has been awarded numerous Tre Bicchieri honors from Gambero Rosso. In the words of Antonio Galloni in Wine Advocate, "These are remarkable wines of the highest level." Wine Spectator rated this 2006 Bussola Amarone 93 points. We find it a true red wine gem!Bussola Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is dark ruby red in color with an enticing nose of blackberries, raisins, leather, cedar and chocolate. It is full in body with soft acidity and silky tannins, offering rich flavors of black raspberry, dates, coffee, cedar, and spice. Bussola uses different barrel sizes, woods (oak, cherry, chestnut, acacia) and aging for each wine, and is always experimenting to add depth and complexity to the wine. The finish is long, smooth and velvety.Enjoy Bussola Amarone della Valpolicella Classico over the next 15-20 years with osso bucco, roast lamb, lasagna, and aged cheeses.
