Sartori Di Verona Estate Collection Della Valpolicella DOCG, 2010 Amarone, $39.99-$41.99, 90+ points, poured a deep dark Maroon with a cloudy rim ring.
Smells of sea breezes, macaroons, roses, and raisins were very pleasant.
Full-bodied with a round luscious texture carried good acidity, easy, yet sufficiently supportive tannin.
Blackberry, boysenberry, and a dominant plum fruit were tart enough to spark the 15% alcohol into a rather interesting tipple.
Finished well on the trailing palate, raisins, and some heat.
Varietals were 50% Corvina, 30% Corvinone, 15% Rondinella, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.
Paired perfectly with my spinach lasagna and sweet Italian sausage.
