Mama Mia! Here We Come Again!

Med ruby, clear, no edge and somewhat staining.  Bright sweet funk, dried spit and oak head into focused briar and Red-Flame grape fruit.  Brilliant vanilla and  red mud on late breathing, with deep cassis and astringency visible.  Now, I am not the world’s biggest Amarone fan, let’s get that outa the way.  Often I find them over-concentrated and dark, suffering from pre-mature oxidation.  Not this one.  In the mouth, stunningly bright and vibrant, acid burning and fruit shining bright from entry til late in finish.  Generous tannin.  A beautiful wine–alive and supple–with amazing versatility and potential.
2011 CORTE GIONA Amarone Della Valpolicella DOCG  14-5
