Floral aromas are layered with notes of ripe black cherry, crushed blackberry, baking spices and a whiff of resin. Despite its full-bodied structure, this is one of the more elegant 2011 Amarones out there, delivering ripe black plum, cocoa and exotic spice. It's already accessible thanks to polished tannins. Drink through 2021.
