Intriguing wine. Keeps changing every 10 minutes in the glass for days on end. Started off as a dry red wine with dark saline and savory flavors and morphed into a more typical Amarone that showed sweet cherry flavors and hints of game meat. Dried flowers, spices, earth and fig paste. Intensely floral on the nose and tons of complexity. Medium body but very intense finish. The proverbial iron fist in a velvet glove. I really loved this.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
