Available for:

Fully saturated inky ruby. Superb nuance and lift to the aromas of raspberry, kirsch, violet, licorice pastille and sweet spices. Wonderfully sappy and energetic in the mouth, with outstanding energy and lift to its red and darker fruit, floral and mineral flavors. This powerful wine showcases an exhilarating balance of sweetness and acidity, not to mention noble tannins that provide backbone to the fleshy ripe fruit on the building, violet aftertaste.

The 2011 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Riserva TB takes its time opening up in the glass, emerging with rich black cherries offset by sour citrus. Over time, its fruit evolves more toward tart raspberry with holiday spices, brown sugar and incense. The textures are like weighty crushed velvet, slowly draped across the palate, leaving ripe black fruits and notes of chocolate, with sweet violet pastille and hints of roasted almond that last well into the finish. Round tannins linger but don't get in the way of this deeply seductive and perfectly balanced expression. A few years of cellaring should unveil further aromatic depths that will heighten the experience, yet this is already pure pleasure in a glass.

Rich, with saturated fruit notes of baked boysenberry and blackberry coulis and accents of medicinal herb and espresso cream, this velvety, full-bodied red is a full-throttle expression of Amarone, set in a harmonious frame. Creamy tannins firm the long, well-spiced finish. Drink now through 2035. 780 cases made.
