Dried thyme and rosemary are a fragrant entry point for this sleek red, cloaking muscular tannins in a well-spiced robe of currant pâte de fruit, tarry mineral and fruitcake flavors, with rich hints of melted licorice and mocha and a firm, mouthwatering finish.
A pure note of lingonberry preserves heralds this finely knit, mouthwatering red. The ripe fruit is meshed with supple tannins and flavors of dried marjoram, dark chocolate shavings, rich, woodsy minerality and creamy melted licorice. Offers a lasting, harmonious finish.
The Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Riserva Costasera opens to a bright ruby color and dark aromas of dried fruit, raisin, tar, grilled herb and licorice. It imparts a texture that is soft, soothing and rich. It is drinking young right now and could use another three to five years of bottle aging for more evolution and complexity.
