Bussola Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2004
|Appellation||Amarone della Valpolicella|
Wine SpectatorCompact and pure, with lovely floral aromas accompanying the sweet date, currant and lightly spiced vanilla. Full-bodied, with a tight, firm tannin structure underpinning the dense dried fruit, followed by a long finish. A stylish Amarone. Best after 2010.
Wine AdvocateThe 2004 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is the wine that formerly carried the "BG" designation as the estate's entry-level Amarone. This is an accessible, fresh style of Amarone with well-delineated aromatics and plenty of clean, focused fruit. Medium in body, it offers outstanding finesse and depth on the palate. This bottling is aged in a combination of small and large barrels of various sizes. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2014.
