2011 Gerardo Cesari Bosan, Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG, Italy (750ml)
This limited-production, single vineyard Amarone is produced in the prestigious Illasi Valley. Concentrated and full-bodied, Bosan displays jammy, raisined fruit flavors. Ripe red cherry notes envelope the palate, while subtle cocoa and vanilla notes follow on the lengthy finish. A powerful wine by nature with a velvety texture, Cesari Bosan Amarone is rich, elegant, and warm. Serve with decadent dishes, from hearty roasts to bitter chocolate desserts.
Blend: 80% Corvina, 20% Rondinella
Lots of dried fruit, sultanas, chocolate and licorice in the nose. It’s full-bodied with solid, rich tannins and a lovely balance of dried fruit, figs and subtle hazelnuts. Flavorful finish. Very nicely done. Drink or hold.
