Two Amarone


 A fantastic Amarone!

On the nose chocolate, cherry, raisins, coffee. 

On the palate dry, with hint of sweetness, rich aromas replays  on the palate. Very intense. Tannins are soft and the acidity is nicely balanced. Full bodied with long and fruity finish

 We had in another glass of



Giacomo Montresor Fondatore Amarone della Valpolicella 2008


 Also it was very nice. And it was very interesting! Same year, but different wine. Even in the glass it wasn't as rich as previous one.

Dark ruby-red color, floral, dried fruit  cherry, chocolate and cedar aromas and flavours.

On the palate dry, full bodied, with balanced acidity but more pronounced. Firm tannins and good length.

A little minerality, pomegranate, floral notes and mint. Little less intensity than Duetorri. 

Both wines were wonderful, subtle and delicious, but the first one was softer, jucier. Different cheeses tasted opposite with those two wines.
