Deep garnet in the glass with an intense black cherry and vanilla bouquet. On the palate, it is full bodied, rich and creamy with smooth tannins. At 16% alcohol, it should really be a monster; in reality, it is fantastically balanced with a minerality which keeps it fresh and dangerously moreish.
Awarded 87 points and Recommended status by Decanter (www.decanter.com) in their May 2017 edition review of Amarone (see blue link below).
Deep ruby red in colour, with perfumes of cherry and black forest gateau. This wine has good body and an ageing potential of at least ten years. It has a smooth and velvety character, with mature, pulpy fruit character and delicious raisin flavours.
Deep ruby in colour with a youthful rim, this Valpolicella has brilliant cherry perfumes. The palate shows perfectly balanced fresh and baked cherry fruit characters, and slightly higher acidity than the previous vintage lifts the ripe fruit and gives a fresh finish.
Ruby red in colour, with a concentrated perfume of red and black cherries, with the ripasso adding a dried cherry intensity. Full-bodied on the palate, with lovely balance between opulent cherry-pie character and supple structure. Good length with a mouthwatering bitter-cherry twist on the finish.
Deep and intense on the nose with perfumes of dried cherries and blueberries, with notes of spiced autumn fruit compote. On the palate it is powerful but modern, with a lovely balance of ripe tannins and spiced, concentrated savoury cherry fruit character. A touch of woodsmoke completes the long finish.
Nice depth of youthful colour, with perfumes of fresh black cherries. On the palate the wine is soft, ripe and rounded, with an attractive freshness which lifts the cherry compote flavours and accentuates its perfume.
A typically spicey Pinot Grigio nose is followed by a more opulent palate, where the mouthfilling Sauvignon Blanc adds body and an underlying smoothness to the finish. A very accomplished wine and a really successful blend.
