The 2009 Amarone della Valpolicella Classicois a beautiful, “international rendition that shows the soft and supple side of Amarone with loads of ripe fruit sweetness. You dont find the thorny notes of oxidation you sometimes get with Amarone. This expression opens with an inky, impenetrable appearance and shows lingering notes of exotic spice, smoked bacon, grilled herb and blackberry preserves. Drink 2015-2025.

Wine Spectator, 92 Points:
Harmonious, with depth to the layers of ferrous mineral, pure black cherry, anise, aromatic tea leaf and herb notes, showing a sense of overall finesse to the frame of fine-grained tannins and lightly juicy acidity. Drink now through 2028.
