This started out very dark toned and plummy, dusty and inky and sweet and slightly raisiniy - typical Amarone. With air it developed some brighter tones like peach kernel and some red fruit hints to counter all the darkness.
It is sweet and not big, but enormous bodied. But it does have plenty of tannins to keep it all together. The aftertaste is a bit warm, but it certainly doesn't seem like the 16.5% abv the label indicates. A good wine in its style, but the style is too far away from my preferences for me to enjoy other than as an intellectual excercice.
