You can't go wrong with this Amarone from one of the area's most storied houses. It always shows consistent quality and the 2010 is no exception. It boasts ripe black cherry and white pepper notes, with hints of raisin and almond. Velvety smooth and round, it's also fresh and very drinkable. Enjoy after 2016 for additional complexity.
