Wine SpectatorShowing fine balance, this juicy red offers a creamy palate of plump cherry and plum sauce flavors, layered with fine tannins and accents of mocha, mineral and ground spice. Quite elegant and polished. Drink now through 2024. 2,500 cases made.
Wine AdvocateGive the 2009 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico a few moments to aerate in the glass. There's a sour cherry or apple note that is distracting at first but also dissipates as the wine takes on more oxygen. The wine shows sweet and chewy fruit in the mouth backed by thick, almost syrupy concentration. Drink 2014-2020.
