There is just something about high quality Amarone which makes it unique among red wines around the world. Deeply flavored, rich, full-bodied with enormously concentrated red and black fruit, soft tannins which caress the palate like the finest cashmere and a finish which just goes on and on and on...
The 2015 Buglioni Amarone della Valpolicella Classico il Lussurioso is all that and more. Just a fabulous wine and one which will give tremendous pleasure for decades as it evolves. And it is very reasonably priced at only $51.99!
James Suckling agrees with us, saying: "The power but also vibrancy of the fruit on the nose is very impressive. Dark plums, incense, tar, dried meat and elderberry compote are out in full force. The soft fruit would be enough in itself, but it's enveloped in meaty, chewy tannins that give this imposing structure and form. The finish is long and powerful and the hints of earth give a savory edge to this robust Amarone. Drink from 2023. 95 points."
Pair it with the ribeye from the I Nonni takeout menu for a match made in heaven!
