Wine AdvocateThe beautiful 2008 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico sees aging in both tonneaux and botte grande for a more traditional and streamlined approach. In fact, the wood element is tightly integrated, with distant shadings of exotic spice and toasted chestnut. Raisin, leather and spirit-soaked cherries come to mind. This 2008 expression shows solid tannins and smooth consistency. Pair this dark red wine with game meat or lamb. Drink 2015-2022.

Wine EnthusiastThis has an earthy fragrance of moist soil and tobacco, with hints of raisin. The palate delivers plum, nutmeg and black pepper notes, but it's already quite evolved, so drink soon.
