Acinum Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2012
Black-skinned fruit, pressed violet and a whiff of chopped herbs lead the nose on this full-bodied red. The bold palate offers high-toned flavors of ripe black cherry, black raspberry, mint and a hint of fig uplifted by fresh acidity. Firm, velvety tannins give it a smooth texture.
This fresh red is medium- to full-bodied and well-integrated, with light, supple tannins layered with flavors of sweet brown bread, plumped cherry, licorice and orange zest. Spiced finish. Drink now through 2021. 500 cases made. -AN
