    2004 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico from Veneto

    The 2004 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico La Mattonara of Zymé displays a ruby-tinted dark red colour. The wine is strong and impresses by its thick and scrumptious black fruit expression followed by black pepper notes. On swirling, the richness is fully released and is enhanced by light menthol freshness. The attack is soft, warm with a mid-palate born by an elegant tannic structure with a tight tannic grain. This strong wine is lingering on the palate and offers a real ageing potential

    Parker : 95 / 100
    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The 2004 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is fabulous. Espresso, grilled herbs, leather, black pepper, wild cherries and licorice blossom on the palate as this layered, totally sublime Amarone conquers the palate. This is a mid-weight style of Amarone built on a core of elegance rather than sheer power. The 2004 is just a touch forward, which is the only thing that keeps the score from going higher. Based on the more recent wines I tasted, there seems to be no limit to what this estate can achieve. The Amarone is 30% Corvina, 30% Corvinone, 30% Rondinella and 5% each Oseleta and Croatina. The wine was aged in a combination of French oak barrels and casks. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2019.
