Bertani Amarone della Valpolicella 2006
|Region||Italy, Veneto, Amarone della Valpolicella|
A classy effort, the 2006 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is a magnificent wine that showcases the qualities and pretty nuances of the elegant vintage. The bouquet is immensely perfumed with delicate tones of crushed mineral, red rose, dried cherry, creme de cassis, Indian spice and cured meat. It's a streamlined expression that is still muted at this young stage. Give it more time to complete its evolutionary course. Drink 2015-2028.
This features the leather, loamy earth and spice box notes of a traditional Amarone, with flavors of dried cherry and cranberry fruit, smoke and herb. Well-knit and lightly juicy, though this fades quickly on the finish. Drink now through 2018. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 8,800 cases made.
