Very impressive, an unquestionably fine dry red. The outstanding, dark purple-colored 1996 Amarone offers a knock-out nose of wood charcoal intermixed with black truffles, melted asphalt, blackberries, and roast beef. Amazingly rich and full-bodied, but not heavy, this chewy, thick, exceptionally pure, harmonious offering should drink well for 10-15+ years. Its low acidity and gorgeously ripe fruit provide immediate accessibility.

Beautifully crafted, with ripe plum, berry and light coffee aromas. Medium- to full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a long finish. Drink now. 11,000 cases made.

This is the fifth bottle of a lot of 6 bottles that we have been drinking since 1999. This just has been getting better each time and I'll probably wait 3-4 more years before opening the last one. It's well-integrated now with the raisiny flavor of Amarone clearly there, but no longer dominating all the rest of the palate.

Deep rich cherrie son the nose and plenty of alcohol. The wine is beginning to show some age around the edges. Still drinking nicely with gripping tannins and spices on the palate. Drink now.
