There's something about that classic black label with red and white script that makes us so thirsty. This has been the “gateway" Amarone for wine lovers for many years now. Baked plum, exotic spice and pipe tobacco with a full-bodied enveloping palate that doles out layers of juicy black cherry marinated in spirits, fig, cinnamon, mocha and nutmeg framed in velvety tannins. Sheer brilliance.

James Suckling

For a decadent but sleek wine, the ripeness level is spot-on here. It opens with glazed cherries, dried berries, vanilla, eucalyptus, caramel and wet earth, before following through to a dusty palate with tons of dried fruit, supported by fine acidity and a sweet-and-sour character.
