MONTRESOR MONTRESOR - Amarone della Valpolicella - 2013

MONTRESOR Amarone della Valpolicella 2013

92 Points

Velvety, opulent, intense.
For Amarone lovers, this beautiful black bottle, gilded with gold, will be a delicious and appreciated gift.
It is made for savoury dishes like osso bucco and game, but fares well with hearty mushroom risotto, aged pecorino or parmesan or even chocolate.
The notes here are opulent and velvety; rich warm chocolate, smoked and preserved cherries, dried rose petals, exotic spices, wild herbs and espresso. The palate is equally weighty and intense with a slick, glycerol texture and flavours of cherries in syrup and spiced bittersweet cocoa. Lengthy and nicely hewn with balanced acidity to keep it from being too ponderous. It has a long and fresh finish.

About Wine Scores

What is a wine score and how do wine reviewers (I don’t refer to myself as a wine critic, I review wine, I don't criticize it) decide on that score?
A wine score is a numerical rating wine reviewers give to a wine based on a series of elements. Every wine reviewer (or wine critic) has their own method of getting to a conclusive number even if they use similar guidelines to one another.
