A very approachable Amarone, though not typical, it’s distinguished by some very noticeable blackcurrant on the palate, along with cherry, strawberry, raspberry, vanilla, and oak. Aromas of vanilla, plum and dried fruit with hints of cocoa and spices. Soft, smooth finish of prunes with great tannins. This will pair beautifully with sharp white cheddar.
