2011 Cesari 'Il Bosco' Amarone della Valpolicella

This single-vineyard Amarone is a rich red with concentrated flavors of preserved cherries, singed orange peel and toasted nuts. Full-bodied and flavorful from start to finish, a great Amarone is a work of art. The grapes endure a full pilgrimage before they ever see the inside of a bottle. Over 120 days, they rest in crates, slowly losing nearly half their weight as the sugars and flavors concentrate, and that’s just the beginning of a long, complex process that includes 2+ years in French and Slavonian oak barrels. Treat your palate to something truly special with this Italian delicacy.

Wine Spectator

An aromatic thread of woodsy spice and dried thyme notes winds around the grippy tannins and layered flavors of baked cherry, singed orange peel, coffee liqueur and tar. A rich, balanced, full-bodied red, with good concentration through to the spiced finish.
