Speri Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Vigneto Monte Sant'Urbano 2000
|Region||Italy, Veneto, Amarone della Valpolicella|
Wine EnthusiastSweet and rich, with a big overlay of caramel, cola and burnt sugar. Sweet and gooey as that may sound, it has gorgeous balance and does not taste heavy or candied. Still, it's overtly ripe, as the cherry and plum flavors sing. Lip-smacking good, and fleshy.
Wine SpectatorA pretty nose with floral and rose hip aromas. Medium- to full-bodied, with fresh fruity flavors, fine tannins and a minerally finish. Best after 2005. 9,500 cases made.
