Villa Erbice Vigneto Tremenel Amarone della Valpolicella 2001 Wine Review (NW)
Amazing notes of black licorice, mint, dark plum, violets, and spice on the nose
Full bodied and plushly textured on the palate
Super rich, velvety finish of mocha and prune
Wow! This wine delivers in abundance. It has an amazing nose that changes and unfolds depending on how you swirl the glass. The texture is plush and the finish is rich and lengthy. What a treat!
PB, one of my co-authors on this site, nabbed a bottle of this several years back on clearance for $50 and was gracious enough to share it. Expect to pay more like $65 if you can track it down. I recommend it as a strong example of what Amarone can be like with a little patience in the cellar. Raise a glass!
