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.
