Bussola Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2009
|Appellation||Amarone della Valpolicella|
Wine SpectatorA mouthwatering red, with a sense of finesse to the integrated layers of juicy baked cherry and plum fruit, fig paste, wild herb and tarry mineral, all set on a refined and supple tannic frame. Complex and long, this harmonious red is hard to stop sipping but should do well in the cellar. Drink now through 2029. 2,500 cases made.
Wine AdvocateTommaso Bussola's 2009 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico opens to warm tones of baking spice, ripe fruit, prune, cherry liqueur and cigar box. This is a very well made Amarone that boasts high levels of aromatic intensity and bold flavor extraction. There's nothing subtle about this big red wine made with air-dried grapes. Soft tannins are followed by rich layers of oak-driven spice and vanilla.
