Zeni Amarone Barriquies 2016
|Region||Italy, Veneto, Amarone della Valpolicella|
Deep ruby red with a garnet red tinge. The bouquet is pervasive, with notes of vanilla and hints of cocoa and spices. Full-bodied, harmonic, pleasantly tannin-rich, with notes of vanilla.A lush Amarone with a silky style and high-impact flavors. Recommended with red meat, braised meat, game, and fermented cheese; a meditation wine.
An exquisite balance of ripe fruit and oak here, melding together nicely on the full-bodied palate with well-placed tannins that create a pleasant, velvety, and fruity carpet that glides gently through the long finish. So well-constructed and will be utterly delicious for a long while yet.
Aromas of cooked prunes and black cherries with hints of cinnamon and caramel. The palate is lush and smooth with fine tannins and flavors of dried mint, green pepper, dutch processed cocoa and black plums.
