95 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - March/April 2012
Opaque ruby-purple. Brooding aromas of blackberry, cocoa, coffee and plum jelly. Very rich, dense and concentrated but fresh thanks to harmonious acidity that nicely frames the ripe red and black fruit flavors. This multilayered, supple wine finishes with polished tannins and an exceptionally long, rising finish. Though it's a highly concentrated monster, it manages to come across as balanced and not at all over-the-top. Amarone does not get much better than this. The grapes were air-dried for roughly two months and the wine was aged in 50% new oak and 50% one-year-old French barriques for 26 months.
