Just fantastic. Baby Amarone, aged a month less than the big daddy.

Powerful and balanced wine. Beautifully integrated tannins, high acid, and high alcohol. Like a party in my mouth. Oak is present but not overpowering.

Really good, but a bit expensive. Balanced, rich, and complex. A backbone of black fruit and high acidity featuring spice, cumin and black pepper complimented by integrated tannin and oak.

Opens up nicely, becoming smoother with subtle hints of ripe, red fruit. Long lasting aftertaste and lacking complexity for the price point.

This is not a baby it's an embryo. You can smell the wine even when your nose is not in the glass. Scents of blackcurrants , spice and figs dance in the glass. As you start to drink it you feel as though a dam burst in your mouth. Tremendous concentration but somehow the structure holds this together and never allows it to be fat. A finish that builds but can go even longer once the tannic structure softens. Not my preferred style anymore but when you get an example like this it's nice to relive the old days. Posted a note almost exactly 2 years ago on the 2007 and I will say it again, I prefer the valpo to the amarone.

Big and vibrant with a smooth finish. Great dark fruits on the nose.

Started off with a dominant cherry and stewed fruit profile and evolved through the night. Strangely enough, the tanins seem to build as time progresses. We loved the wine and believe it has many years of potential remaining.

More approachable than the 2002. Plummy, rich, high-toned. Clearly good juice. Very age worthy, this seems a bit early to drink this.
