Tommaso Bussola Tb Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico Vigneto Alto 2006
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
External Reviews for Tommaso Bussola Tb Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico Vigneto Alto
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.
The 2006 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is gorgeous. Dark cherries, plums, flowers, mint and licorice are among the nuances that are woven in a fabric of total class and elegance.

A Proprietary Blend wine from Veneto in Italy. 2006 Bussola, Tommaso Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 750ml
Of garnet-russet hue, this wine is slightly sweet, warm, robust, full, harmonious, velvety with a most satisfying touch of bitterness. It is the ideal wine with game and has no rivals as an accompaniment to hard cheeses.
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.
