A ruby red color with garnet reflections. Clear and transparent. A fresh bouquet with clear notes of cherry and currants. Good body, well-balanced and harmonic structure. The after-taste confirms the characteristics of the bouquet. Cellar for up to five years.
"The 2006 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is fabulous. Dark cherries, plums, menthol, leather and licorice flow effortlessly from this rich, round Amarone. This shows marvelous richness and density while avoiding heaviness in a moderately concentrated style for Amarone. Bitter chocolate and mocha linger on the intense yet beautifully crafted finish. This is another superb effort from Tedeschi. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022."
The Wine Advocate
"This silky red shows solid structure, with light tannins framing the notes of sun-dried currant and strawberry, macerated plum, cigar box spice and sanguine mineral. There's a subtle juiciness throughout, with a hint of briar lingering on the finish. Drink now through 2026. 700 cases imported. "
"Starts off with clean integration and elegant aromas of ripe cherry, forest berry, vanilla bean, clove and ginger. It continues its impressive performance with smooth tannins and a velvety texture."
