Full-bodied but elegant, this conveys an attractive fragrance of blue flower, wet earth, exotic spice and black cherry. The juicy palate delivers black plum and crushed raspberry while notes of ground white pepper, clove and cinammon add depth. Thanks to fresh acidity and polished tannins, it's well-balanced and more accessible than most Amarones. Drink through 2020.
