This is easy to recognize thanks to its distinctive intensity and opulence. This 2007 may be the best bottling yet. It oozes with sweet flavors of cardamom, cinnamon, crushed clove, nutmeg and all kinds of ripe berry fruit. There’s a firm tannic bite on the finish, which is followed by long-lasting succulent sweetness.
It’s the rare Amarone that demands cellaring these days, but this is definitely a candidate. Grilled black plum scents lead the way, followed by plum, prune and dark chocolate flavors. Dusty, cocoa-powder-like tannins and a small amount of sweetness should mellow in four or five years, so drink from 2010.
This is an oak-driven Amarone that offers generous tones of vanilla and exotic spice lavished over dark plum and prune. The mouthfeel is characterized by chewy, sweet density and long-lasting fruit flavors.
Tedeschi’s base Amarone is a beautiful wine with integrated flavors of spice and dark fruit that are evenly spread over its smooth, supple mouthfeel. Soft tannins and rich density make this wine a good choice for steak with creamy mushroom sauce.
Starts off with clean integration and elegant aromas of ripe cherry, forest berry, vanilla bean, clove and ginger. It continues its impressive performance with smooth tannins and a velvety texture.
Tedeschi’s wines made in the traditional appassimento style always boast their own unique style and personality. The house style is sweeter, plumper, denser and more astringent than most. This offers endless intensity in the form of moist pipe tobacco, sweet plum and mesquite wood.
Tedeschi’s base Amarone made with grapes from various vineyards is distinctive, unique and extremely succulent. The wine boasts chewy cherries, milky chocolate, natural rubber, raisin, pine, tar, maple syrup and black stone. In fact, there is no Amarone quite like it, especially considering the immediate, incredibly intense rush of aromas that it offers.
Vibrant and full of good cheer, this ruby-colored Recioto boasts cherry, red apple, Turkish spice, leather and dark chocolate. In fact, it would make a perfect companion to chocolate-based dishes. The mouthfeel is chewy and rich with lively cherry intensity and silky tannins. It is worth pointing out, however, that I tasted three corked bottles before finding a good one.
